The Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) is a trade association for institutional limited partners in the private equity asset class. It is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and has an additional office in Toronto, Ontario.
ILPA was founded in the early 1990s. ILPA was co-founded by Private Equity Hall-of-Famer, Thomas B. Judge, Sr. in the early 1990s.
Members of ILPA include public and corporate pension funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, family offices, and sovereign wealth funds. According to ILPA, its membership totals more than 500 investors representing over $2 trillion in private equity investments.
The limited partner investor universe in private equity has historically been highly fragmented and individual investors, even the largest investors, often have limited ability to negotiate the terms of the individual private equity funds to which they commit.
ILPA's education and networking functions allow greater communication and collaboration between investors. Its advocacy work seeks to improve transparency, governance and alignment of interests between limited and general partners in the private equity industry. ILPA was actively involved in discussions centering on the adoption of fair value accounting under of FAS 157.
In September 2009, ILPA released a set of guidelines, the Private Equity Principles, intended to provide a common set of terms which institutional limited partners could use as the basis for negotiation with fund managers. Since that time the Principles have been updated first in 2011, and more recently in 2019.
