  • SPV's Rising Popularity: SPVs are favored for their operational flexibility and ease of management.
  • SPV vs. Blind Pool Funds: SPVs offer a balance between specific-deal focus and managerial simplicity.
  • Industry Trend: A shift towards SPV structures is predicted, moving away from traditional Co-GP models.
