David Larsen, Managing Director in the Alternative Asset Advisory practice, was recently quoted in a Buyouts article that discussed how limited partners (LPs) are evaluating opportunities and potential riptides in a volatile market.

When talking about how LPs usually receive private equity returns from managers on a quarter lag, David commented that, “It is not a big deal when the market is stable and relatively predictable. Accounting standards allow LPs to report quarter-lagged results as long as the change in value is not significant. But when there is a market disruption like this, the considerations and rules change. It puts more pressure on them to find out information. They need to either call their GPs and find out an estimate of where net-asset value is going to be, or they need to come up with a process internally to come up with their own estimate.”
