EX-KKR PARTNER TO LAUNCH €1BN FUND – The ex-Head of UK & Ireland at KKR, @Dominic Murphy, has revealed plans to launch a new buyout firm called 8C Capital with the plan to raise €1bn for healthcare and consumer related deals. There has been speculation that Murphy has also hired 2 of his former colleagues to join him at his new firm.
