    OVERVIEW: Driven by superior returns, private equity has grown enormously over the past two decades, becoming a core asset class for global institutions. Aggregate industry AUM reached $2.9 trillion in 2011, growth of over 300% from the $716 billion managed in 2000. These returns come at a price for LPs - illiquidity, large bite size commitments, volatility, lumpy capital calls and distributions are all factors that make private equity challenging for investors. Today’s private equity firms themselves face a shortage of needs. They need to put about $1 trillion of "dry powder" to work (40% of which is allocated to buyouts) at a time when opportunities seem to be scarce. They need to avoid overpaying for assets while deal multiples remain high. They need to find ways to realize top returns when they are holding aging assets in their portfolios at little more than intrinsic value. They need to exit exisiting investments before they can go back on the road to raise their next fund. They need to exhibit to LPs that they have the discipline, operating expertise, repeatable value model and patience to separate them from a crowded field. Our panel of distinguished private equity investors provide the perspective of the limited partner, as we explore opportunities and challenges in the private equity industry.
