The market for new private equity funds remains strong going into 2019, reports Buyouts in a Dec. 24 article titled PE fundraising remains resilient going into 2019.” The article includes from private investment funds partner & practice co-leader John Ayer. GPs “will continue to experiment with longer-dated fund structures, as well as GP-led secondary processes that can give LPs the choice between liquidity and sticking with a portfolio for longer,” states Mr. Ayer in the article. “The traditional model often tends to limit the time that a sponsor can own a particular business, and I think sponsors and investors are wondering whether that is always in their interest, especially if you’ve got a good business that’s performing well,” Mr. Ayer said.
