GP-led and LP-led transactions are two ways to buy and sell stakes in long-term funds and private companies. GP-led transactions are becoming more popular due to market volatility but are less efficient and offer lower fees for the GP
The GP and LP-led transactions are two distinct liquidity options for investors in the secondary market, where both stakes in long-term funds and private companies change hands. GP-led transactions have become more popular in recent years due to market volatility caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. In a GP-led transaction, the GP controls the timeline and is responsible for creating the liquidity in the portfolio, while in an LP-led transaction, the LP controls the timing, and the GP is hands-off. GP-led transactions are less efficient but offer lower fees and start at lower carried interest rates with higher carried interest hurdles, which creates a “double benefit” for the GP. However, GP-led transactions lack some of the fundamental characteristics that secondaries are supposed to deliver and don't offer much of a discount for the buyer.
