Explain the life cycle of a PE fund?

Typically, a life cycle of a PE fund constitutes three phases and lasts for 10 years.

• The second phase lasts for two to three years where the fund will source, identify and make investments on the funds raised.


• Finally, in phase three which customarily lasts for five to six years the PE fund will harvest their investments and work with management teams of their investee companies to add value. The end of the phase will see funds exit their investments and return the money to Limited partners (investors in the PE fund)
