Administration of Private Equity Funds - Carried Interests
Alternative Investment Funds remunerate their investment managers with a share of realised gain on their private equity investments on the basis of a required performance benchmark. Carried Interest (partnership allocation) is considered as a tool to align the interests of both investors and investment managers.
Calculation methods are driven by private agreements and some clauses or special considerations are unique to each Fund, it is essential to understand the pitfalls and issues linked to its measurement.
