Information is Power

Above is one of a few clichés i could have picked for this post.  But, if anyone’s doubting the premise, they can look at the news about Gerson Lehrman‘s new round of funding by Silver Lake, at an $875m valuation.

While i think the high revenues at GL is the fairly elastic demand by hedge funds (i.e. they really tend to be pretty generous with fees charged to them by high quality service providers), this is still a testament to the value of insight.

This news also makes the recently reported LinkedIn valuation rumours make sense.

Congratulations to Mark Gerson and the Gerson Lerhman team.
