This is the first of a two-part article that provides a detailed review of the business terms usually found in a Private Equity Fund's limited partnership agreement. Part I focuses on economic terms: commitment amounts, capital calls, waterfalls (the distribution scheme), give-backs, clawbacks, fees & expenses. In closing it touches on some special investor issues relating to tax and ERISA. Part II, in a separate article, deals with governance matters.
