This chapter develops the research hypotheses for the empirical, quantitative analysis. Section 3.1 therefore discusses the major investor types that invest in PE funds. Section 3.2 presents preliminary results that formed the basis for the explorative interviews with a number of industry practitioners. The interviews are found in section 3.3.1. Before summarizing the hypotheses, section 3.3.2 takes a few key notions of the interviews and develops specific hypotheses. Section 3.3.3 then states the hypotheses and concludes the chapter.
