Private equity fund governance

Smaller institutions risk missing out
Are smaller institutional investors being short-changed by developments in private equity fund governance? Trends in co-investing and at LPACs suggest that this might well be the case.

According to the results of a major research that The NED’s parent, IFI Global, conducted with both LPs and GPs earlier in the year the influence of investors in the private equity industry is growing significantly and has never been as strong as it is today. The overwhelming majority of interviewees – both LPs and GPs – expect that there will be yet more investor involvement in the governance structures of the private equity industry in future.
