Henry Smithers Featured in Private Equity Wire Discussing Factors Driving Co-Investments by LPs and GPs

Henry Smithers, Managing Director in Duff & Phelps’ M&A Advisory practice, shared his views with Private Equity Wire on factors driving co-investments as an alternative fund structure for Limited Partners (LPs) and General Partners (GPs). The article focuses on how institutional investors and other involved parties can successfully execute a co-investment as this fund structure becomes increasingly popular with GPs and LPs.

Emphasizing the compelling factors for co-investments, Henry explains, “Firstly, for private equity houses, co-investment with institutional investors is a way to build a closer relationship with a LP, which can be beneficial in a competitive current and future fund-raising environment. Co-investing can also allow the GP to invest in a quality asset which may have otherwise breached restrictions related to fund diversification.”
