Callan’s 2021 Private Equity Fees and Terms Study is a comprehensive update to our inaugural study conducted last year. With each year, the study’s dataset broadens, and this year we include a wider variety of general partners and strategy types. The study is intended to help institutional investors better evaluate private equity funds, serving as an industry benchmark when comparing a partnership’s terms to its peers. This study can also be useful for general partners, to determine how their fees and terms compare to other managers.
