Getting fund governance right – the Manager & Investor Perspective
The influence of investors in the private equity industry is growing significantly and has never been as strong as it is today. Vistra, in partnership with IFI Global, conducted a worldwide research study investigating the current state of play in PE fund governance. The LPs and GPs interviewed provide a window into trends in LPAC development, co-investing, outsourcing, transparency and fund structures.
Using the main insights of the research as a backdrop, governance service providers and leading PE industry figures provide a (post-AIFMD) reality check on the fundamentals of fund governance and operational due diligence, and discuss their views on the current and future state of fund governance in Europe.
