Managing and mitigating conflicts of interests in GP-led transactions

“Managing and mitigating conflicts of interests in GP-led transactions,” an article by Akin Gump investment management partner Fadi Samman, senior counsel Krishna Skandakumar and Amanda Butler-Jones, has been published by Reuters.

The article concerns general partner (GP)-led secondary transactions. The authors note that these transactions enable a sponsor or GP “to manage one or more existing assets in a newly formed fund capitalized by new investors through a fund restructuring.”

Although these deals are presented as a win for all parties, the article notes that, “as the market continues to expand against a backdrop of increased regulatory scrutiny, navigating the conflicts of interests has become increasingly important” and, so, explores key considerations in managing conflicts of interests in GP-led transactions and how to mitigate them.
