The role of banks and non-traditional lenders in private equity

"​Banks will continue to show up for quality deals. That said, we have seen a decline in the amount of debt leveraged buyout transactions in recent years and that trend has continued this year. PE firms have been working harder to secure financing because of higher market values and increased regulatory scrutiny at banks. This trend has opened up the market for non-traditional lenders, particularly outside of the United States."

"General Partners (GP) have worked closely with Limited Partners (LP) to develop a cadence in reporting that is both useful to LPs and not disruptive to GP operations."
