Permira Advisers buy Duff & Phelps

 UK private equity group Permira Advisers has signed a USD 1,750 million deal to acquire a majority interest in Duff & Phelps. The New York-based financial consultant’s shareholders, Carlyle Group, Neuberger Berman and the University of California, are making a full exit through the transaction. Members of Duff & Phelps’ management team, however, will retain a significant stake and will resume their current roles to lead the target’s business.
