The ILPA also introduced several new discounts, including products from Preqin, Institutional Investor Journals, and PEI. ILPA members can expect to see many more product discounts in the near and long term. By maximizing the number of exclusive, member discounts, we hope to further empower LPs to make informed choices about the universe of research products that can support their investment activities. • While the ILPA explores more industry partnerships, it continues to leverage its most valuable resource: the collective wisdom of its membership. In 2016, member ideas and data were aggregated to produce two new Document Checklists, providing guidance on fund closings and end of life events. The annual LP Compensation Survey, which analyzed salary and bonus data provided by 350 investment professionals, was also released at the end of the year. As the ILPA membership grows, the goal is to expand these initiatives in new and interesting ways. The R&B pipeline for 2017 is robust with projects that will continue to deliver practical resources to empower ILPA members across their respective organi- zations. Proprietary research, partnerships, and surveys are expected to yield data and insights exclusively for LPs amidst a rapidly changing environment. ILPA members are always encouraged to submit research requests to the team so that a broad set of needs can continue to be met.
