Self Description

August 2007: "TPG is a leading global private investment firm with over $30 billion of capital under management. We manage a family of funds including private equity, venture capital and public equity and debt investing. Since the firm's founding in 1992, our investment philosophy has been to create value by investing in change - change created by industry trends, economic cycles or specific company circumstances. Our tradition of providing unique investment insight and value-added operating capabilities to companies undergoing change, as well as our comfort in dealing with complexity and distressed companies, differentiates us from many traditional private investment firms.

We provide creative capital, structured for each investment opportunity. While we do not seek to become involved in the daily operations of our portfolio companies, our wealth of experience, deep industry expertise and large global network of affiliated partners position us as a vital resource from which management can draw strategic, financial and operational guidance.

TPG invests in companies across a broad range of industries and geographies. Our goal is to help management teams build long-term value that benefits all stakeholders. We structure our private equity investments based on each company’s circumstances and generally seek to invest in established businesses requiring equity capital between $100 million and $750 million."

Mar 17, 2011 FDIC sues former WaMu executives for $900 million

QUOTE: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is suing three former top executives of Washington Mutual Bank, ... “They focused on short-term gains to increase their own compensation, with reckless disregard for WaMu’s long- term safety and soundness,” according to the complaint... “It is patently unfair for the FDIC to expect an individual to have perfect foresight into a crisis that the FDIC itself did not see coming,” Rotella said.
