On 1 January 2005, the UK’s Freedom of Information Act that was originally passed in 2000 came into full effect. Immediately it has opened up the disclosure debate amongst practitioners in the private equity industry.

It may be some time before anyone truly knows the Act’s full effect, but it hasn’t stopped the chins from wagging.
