Carlyle’s David Rubenstein Builds Family Office With Outside Ambitions

Publisher: Bloomberg News
May 24, 2018

R. Scott Beach, chair of Day Pitney’s Corporate and Business Law Department and head of its Family Office Practice, was quoted in an article, “Carlyle’s David Rubenstein Builds Family Office With Outside Ambitions,” published by Bloomberg News. The article discusses Carlyle Group LP co-founder David Rubenstein’s recently announced family office, “Declaration Capital” and its affiliate, “Declaration Partners,” which is reported to target venture, growth and family-owned businesses. As noted in the article, family offices can present challenges for private equity principals and other investment professionals. Beach told Bloomberg News that fund principals launching family offices “need to be sensitive to potential conflicts of interest” that can arise when their family offices engage in direct investing. He commented further, “They should invest in strategies, assets or sectors that they don’t follow in their funds” to mitigate the risk of conflicts and avoid running afoul of their fund’s compliance policies.

The article also appears on, the Financial Advisor magazine website, and Deal Street Asia.
