Private equity fund terms have been of particular interest given the recent rapid growth of private equity in the Asia Pacific region.  Following the release by the International Limited Partners Association (ILPA) of the ILPA Private Equity Principles in September 2009, Squadron Capital undertook a survey of a sample of Asian private equity funds launched during the past two years and open to investment by international institutional investors, to see how their terms and conditions compare to the ILPA's view of global best practice.  The talk will provide a snapshot of some of the current hot topics in private equity in Hong Kong and elsewhere within the Asia Pacific region, including the level of management fees and management fee offsets, no-fault divorce provisions, and the ability of private equity funds to invest in PIPEs.
