This article studies the question of the private equity contract in the post-2007 financial crisis. It considers the causes and consequences of the private equity contract during periods of financial crisis. It then argues that the private equity contract is a relevant part of the past success of private equity, and outlines the development and origins of the private equity contract and its structure. From there the article examines the effect of the financial crisis on the private equity contract, where it emphasizes the role that the private equity contract has had in the private equity industry. This article also presents the failures of the private equity contract and its ability to limit the development of private equity.
