Cognizant of the record growth in the private equity industry over the last ten years, funds are working harder than ever to put capital to work. Today, the industry manages over $3 trillion of capital and the amount of dry powder has surpassed $1 trillion. In order to generate growth and maintain returns on the capital pouring into the industry, GPs must enhance their capabilities and develop new strategies. Or change the terms of their relationships with LPs.
At Institutional Investor’s 2019 Private Equity Summit – West Coast, GPs and LPs will meet to compare notes on the current investment opportunity set in private equity and debt. What are GPs and LPs doing to enhance their respective investment processes and improve investment outcomes? Will LP appetite for niche strategies remain strong going into 2019?
