More regulation is rarely welcomed in the private equity industry. The story of private fund advisors taking issue with burdensome regulation is a familiar one. The lesser-known—and arguably more interesting—story is the limited partners’ response to the changing world. Limited partners may be sympathetic to private equity general partners’ complaints about their regulatory burden, but they also like the level of transparency this additional oversight is producing.

Featured in Private Equity International's “Perspectives,” this article discusses the changing regulatory environment in private equity, and its effect on limited partners and private equity general partners. Regulations discussed include the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and Form PF.
