In a syndication, a general partner (GP) plays a crucial role in managing the investment and overseeing the operations of the syndicate. Here are the typical roles and responsibilities of a general partner:

  1. Deal Sourcing and Evaluation: The general partner is responsible for identifying potential investment opportunities and sourcing deals that align with the syndicate's investment strategy. They evaluate the feasibility, financials, risks, and potential returns of each deal.
  2. Investor Relations: GPs interact with and manage relationships with investors who provide capital for the syndicate. They communicate the investment thesis, strategy, and progress of the syndicate to the investors, addressing any queries or concerns they may have.
  3. Fundraising: General partners are often responsible for raising capital from investors to fund the syndicate's investments. They create investment offerings, pitch the opportunities to potential investors, negotiate terms, and secure commitments.
  4. Due Diligence: GPs perform thorough due diligence on potential investment opportunities to assess their viability. This involves analyzing financial statements, conducting market research, reviewing legal documents, and evaluating the risks associated with the investment.
  5. Investment Decision Making: Once the due diligence process is complete, the general partner, in consultation with the limited partners (LPs) or syndicate members, makes investment decisions. The GP assesses the risk-reward profile, negotiates terms, and structures the investment.
  6. Asset Management: General partners actively manage the investments made by the syndicate. They monitor the performance of the assets, develop and execute strategies to maximize returns, oversee property management, and make decisions regarding leasing, financing, or divestment.
  7. Risk Management: GPs are responsible for identifying and managing risks associated with the investments. They develop risk mitigation strategies, assess and monitor market conditions, and implement contingency plans to minimize potential losses.
  8. Reporting and Compliance: General partners maintain accurate financial records, prepare reports on the performance of the syndicate's investments, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. They provide regular updates to investors, including financial statements and investor distributions.
  9. Exit Strategy: GPs formulate exit strategies for investments in consultation with the LPs. They assess market conditions, determine optimal timing for divestment, and execute the exit plan to maximize returns for the syndicate.
  10. Communication and Collaboration: General partners collaborate with various stakeholders, including investors, legal advisors, brokers, property managers, and other professionals involved in the syndication. Effective communication and coordination with these parties are vital for the success of the syndicate.

It's important to note that the specific roles and responsibilities of a general partner can vary depending on the structure of the syndication and the terms outlined in the partnership agreement.
