Quayle, chairman of Cerberus Global Investments, addressed the Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst conference in New York Wednesday, and "was less excited about China," Reuters reports. "Despite its growing economy and a nascent buyout community, the country remains unchartered land for Cerberus, he said."

"We'll let others go there first," Quayle says of China. "It's still a jungle over there. You have to be very careful," he added, "referring to China's legal system and the difficulties it could cause for corporate restructurings," the article notes. "Japan, however, continues to be ripe for private equity investing, said Quayle."
