Fund terms visualised

Management fees, hurdle rates and carried interest waterfalls; a visual guide to economic fund terms today.

Here are highlights from two 2018 studies into private equity fund terms.

  • MJ Hudson’s Private Equity Fund Terms Report 2018, published in June, was collated via a survey of private markets funds targeting more than €154 billion of capital in commitments.
  • Proskauer’s Under the Microscope: A Focus on the Critical Issues, published in March, analysed 56 private equity funds raised between July 2016 and December 2017. Each fund was a Europe-based or Europen-focused buyout fund ranging from €100 million to €12.5 billion, representing €118 billion in total.
