Top Questions to Ask PE Funds


Hoping to get some knowledge from the forum and see if you have used any insightful questions to ask associates / VP's at various PE funds.

Trying to boil down a few questions that can shed some light on the fund, responsibilities, growth etc.

Please let me know if you guys have any that have worked well for you!
