BHF Private Equity name change

BHF Private Equity has changed its name to Steadfast Capital. BHF Private Equity was originally founded in 2001, under the umbrella of BHF Bank. BHF Bank was owned by ING until earlier this year when it was sold. However, ING continued to support BHF Private Equity post selling BHF Bank. This was possible because although once part of BHF Bank, BHF Private Equity was structured as an independent management company, and so did not make up the sale of BHF Bank by ING. It made no sense to continue with the BHF Private Equity name post the sale when no ties with that bank remained, so the firm renamed itself Steadfast Capital.
