Here are some potential causes of LP concerns during diligencing on GPs:

  • Size of fund too large for new manager
  • Large # of deals per person
  • Poor updates 
  • Small network
  • Bad references from portfolio founders 
  • Bad references from co-investors 
  • Unfamiliar sector
  • GP is unable to openly discuss previous investment mistakes
  • GPs track record doesn't match the thesis
