This CLE course will analyze different options for providing liquidity to private equity funds that are facing a shortage of capital in the current market environment. The panel will review the mechanics and the pros and cons of these alternative structures.


Private equity fund managers often seek ways to provide additional capital to cash-strapped portfolio companies and raise additional capital on a quick timeline to take advantage of favorable investment and expansion opportunities.

This webinar will explore several avenues of raising such additional capital, including continuation funds, use and expansion of existing subscription and other credit facility collateral, preferred equity lines, and top-up funds.

Listen as our authoritative panel of practitioners discusses the structure, benefits, and pitfalls of these alternative fund structures. The panel will compare and contrast these alternative structures and discuss how they fit in the current fundraising landscape and the overall economic environment.



  1. Continuation funds and other GP-led liquidity solutions
  2. Credit facilities, NAV loans and other financing structures in current environment
  3. Preferred equity lines, top-up funds and other alternatives


The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • How has the current market environment impacted the liquidity of private equity funds?
  • What are some of the recent developments in terms, structure and regulatory focus on continuation funds?
  • To what extent has the availability of traditional financing been impacted by the current market environment and recent bank failures?
  • How can preferred equity lines, top-up funds, and continuation funds be used to raise additional capital?
  • What are the benefits and pitfalls of these alternative structures?
