PE & VC cash flows set to decline from 2014 levels
March 11, 2016
GPs are still able to raise ample amounts of capital, but the constant lack of targets to deploy that money continues to haunt many fund managers. With that, LPs have received distributions of near $216 billion from PE funds through the first half of 2015 and $35.4 billion from VC vehicles.
LPs have enjoyed positive net cash flows from alternative asset class GPs, yet they've also re-committed a significant amount. Moving forward, will LPs look to closer track fund performance as they employ more risk averse strategies?
