Private equity continues to be a leading alternative investment asset class and most investors will access this through some combination of making primary commitments to third party managed private equity funds, co-investments alongside those funds in deals, and secondary transactions acquiring stakes in funds from existing investors.

Private equity funds involve complex tax, regulatory and legal considerations and this new virtual classroom seminar will de-mystify the structuring process, explaining how to approach the different fund structures and to ensure that your interests are protected.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive course will cover the following:

  • An overview of the objectives of managers and investors in structuring private equity funds
  • Key terms of private equity funds, broken down into:

    • Boilerplate
  • A guide to market standards for key terms
  • An overview of hot topics including changes to existing fund terms as well as recent developments such as approaches to NAV facilities, GP-led restructurings, and continuation vehicles
  • Guidance on co-investments including participation in a co-investment deal - what to expect and how it differs from the fundraising activities in terms of process, economics and governance
