Private Equity Sets Its Sites On A New Funding Victim: Mom-And-Pop 401(k)s

• http://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden

Sure, because as our recent headlines confirm, wall street money managers have worked wonders for public/private pension funds:

Are Collapsing Pensions "About To Bring Hell To America"?

Alas, with companies increasingly opting for defined-contribution retirement plans (401k's) in-lieu of defined benefit plans, combined with the trillions of dollars of losses that wall street has racked up for the nation's largest pensions, it's no wonder that 'millionaire, billionaire, private jet owners', like Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone, are looking to get their 'fair share' of fees from America's $4.8 trillion in 401(k) assets.

As Schwarzman told Bloomberg, "you have to have a dream," and his dream is to apparently lay waste to a whole new pocket of American retirement wealth.
