ABSTRACT
The article probes into the emerging trend of private equity firms becoming or planning to become active underwriters for corporate debt by launching their own corresponding business units. Among these firms were Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and the Blackstone Group through its GSO Capital Partners credit arm. It is pointed out that the primary reason for such a move is to generate a consistent stream of fees.
