DOCUMENT COLLECTION: HARD COPY OR ELECTRONIC?

Another point worth noting in regard to the document collection and request process relates to the actual format in which documentation is transmitted from the private equity firm under review. In general, the document request list is transmitted to the fund electronically via e-mail. This is common with most modern communication, as opposed to a long-form, hard-copy letter.

Of course, this same request could be submitted in person or over the phone; however, electronic document request submissions are generally preferred for several reasons. First, as an investor you have a written detailed written record of exactly what documents you may have requested. Second, as suggested earlier, it is more difficult for the fund to fake their way through this list by submitting a partially complete response. However, putting the document request format aside, we can return to the format in which the private equity fund responds, that is, the format or manner in which the requested documents are delivered.
