This article addresses the question of whether the private equity fund-of-funds managers provide value or not. It studies the value added by funds of funds, and suggests that fund-of-funds managers do not appear to perform better on a risk-adjusted basis than their peers. This article also tries to determine if these managers provide the private equity investor with value. It also considers if the institutional investors should invest in getting the necessary connection that would help them directly access private equity investments.

Keywords: fund-of-funds managers; value; funds of funds; risk-adjusted basis; institutional investors; private equity investor; private equity investments
