The Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) engages, empowers and connects limited partners (LPs) to maximize their performance on an individual, institutional and collective basis. LPs serve as trusted financial stewards who direct critical capital into private equity investments on behalf of their beneficiaries which include retirees, teachers, firefighters, police officers, universities, charities, and insurance policyholders. With approximately 450 member institutions representing more than $2 trillion USD of private equity assets under management (AUM), ILPA is the only global organization dedicated exclusively to advancing the interests of LPs and their beneficiaries through best-in-class education, research, advocacy, and events.
From its origins as an informal networking club comprising a few dozen LPs, ILPA has grown its membership to more than 4,500 professionals today across 50+ countries, managing 50% of the global institutional private equity AUM. Members represent all investor categories of small and large institutions including public pensions, corporate pensions, endowments, foundations, family offices, insurance and investment companies, development financial institutions and sovereign wealth funds.
