Biggest Nordic Buyout Fund Sees “Asset Bubbles Wherever We Look”

Biggest Nordic Buyout Fund Sees “Asset Bubbles Wherever We Look” (ZeroHedge, Feb 19, 2015):

“We’re more leveraged today than in 2006-2007,” warns Thomas von Koch – managing partner at EQT, the largest buyout fund in the Nordic region, adding that “there are financial bubbles being built up and how they’ll be solved, I don’t know.” As Bloomberg reports, von Koch concludes, an unprecedented era of monetary stimulus is inflating asset prices across markets to extreme levels, with history offering little help in predicting how it will all end – “The problem is global, not just for Europe. It’s the asset bubbles in general that concern me. It’s wherever we look.”
