This article examines the post-financial crisis trends in the private equity industry. Although most research has followed the pre-crisis trends, we show that investors are

pattern also reveals the inclusion of more straightforward co-investment rights. Besides
the contractual ?improvements?, we observe that investors want to see more skin in the
game from the managers/general partners.
