The article focuses on the role of private equity in investment banking. The case of the pairing of JPMorgan's JPMorgan Partners LLC and Credit Suisse's DLJ Merchant Banking in 2003 is cited. Following that deal, JPMorgan spun out its private equity arm. The unrest among captive investment groups during the period was not confined to the two firms. Even before the deal, investment banks were rethinking their private equity exposure. INSET: Lehman Too Seeks Co-Investment Gold.
