So does this mean pension funds will be using some of the buccaneering practises of private equity, such as loading up takeovers with debt?

We saw the genius of this sort of thing last summer when they took a fling on commodities. I hate the superspecialized markets we're in now. But if you're not an expert, you're probably the sucker.

What's the regulatory difference between a Private Equity firm and a Hedge Fund? It seems both rely on funds from private investors.
From a regulatory perspective, there isn't much of a difference. They are all part of the shadow banking system and face little oversight, especially in the US (UK is different). From an investor's point of view, hedge funds are more liquid because you're not tying up your capital for 7+ years.
what's shadow banking system, mean? shadow=dark.
little oversight. they get away with bad stuff, more often?
no sec overlooking these guys, huh.
can public people invest in private equity firms?
No, only "sophisticated" investors (institutions and high net worth individuals) can invest in hedge funds, but there is an effort to "index" absolute return strategies and offer them to retail Joe & Jane. I wouldn't touch that crap with a ten foot pole.
