Field work for the fifth annual Buyouts Emerging Manager Survey conducted in partnership with Gen II Fund Services, LLC was carried out between May 28 and July 2, 2021. A total of 145 managers self-selected as “emerging managers” were surveyed.
The initial list was narrowed down to managers that have fundraised or are in the process of fundraising their third fund or fewer. A total of 56 institutional investors with a self-identified appetite for emerging managers were surveyed. Incomplete fund manager and investor surveys were reviewed for inclusion in the sample on a respondent-by-respondent basis.
