Purge sends chilling message to NKorea's elite
9 Dec 2013 | 5:32 am
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — While the rest of North Korea's top brass leaped to their feet before Kim Jong Un, clapping wildly in a requisite show of respect at high-level meetings, his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, often seemed nonchalant, at times even bored. Once considered the force behind the young leader, he displayed a bold insouciance that seemed calculated to show he was beyond reach.
Long-serving Jupiter boss to step down ahead of new growth push
9 Dec 2013 | 4:48 am
By Simon Jessop and Chris Vellacott LONDON (Reuters) - Jupiter Fund Management's long-serving chief executive Edward Bonham Carter is stepping down to make way for a new guard charged with accelerating sales and international expansion at the UK-focused investment firm. He will be replaced by Distribution and Strategy Director Maarten Slendebroek on March 17, 2014, and take up a role as vice chairman, responsible for "engaging with key stakeholders" and reporting to Slendebroek. Bonham Carter, brother to actress Helena Bonham Carter, has run the firm since 2000, overseeing a series of landmark events in its history such as a private equity-backed management buyout in 2007 and a stock market listing in 2010. Insiders say the transition marks a new strategic chapter for Jupiter, focused on boosting assets by stepping up sales and marketing and internationalising the firm's client base.

Cerberus moves to allow investors to exit Freedom Group-sources
8 Dec 2013 | 9:16 pm
Cerberus Capital Management LP is working on a mechanism that would allow its fund investors to exit Freedom Group Inc, the maker of the Bushmaster rifle used in the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting rampage, people familiar with the matter said on Sunday. The move comes a year after the New York-based private equity firm said it would sell Freedom Group, a pledge that was made four days after 26 people, most of them children, were killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. It is the clearest indication yet that Cerberus has been struggling to sell Freedom Group amid reluctance from Wall Street banks to finance such a transaction, though people familiar with the matter said efforts were continuing to attract a feasible offer. Full details of the mechanism were not disclosed but the sources said Cerberus would seek a credit amendment with existing lenders of Freedom Group on Monday for a new debt facility in a conference call organized by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
