Limited Partners (LPs) or institutional investors investing in Indian private equities warn about the euphoria building around the asset class.

While everything looks good in a bull market, LPs assert that PE fund managers need to learn that long-held assumptions and complacencies can and will fall apart in a subprime ambience.
