This is confusing. I’m assuming this is a waterfall? You would need to see the IRR hurdle rates

What EY 2 said plus if there are any carry allocations in the waterfall there may need to be large cumulative returns as well

So let's say the fund does a deal and comes up with \$100,000 profit. 30% goes to LPs.....\$30,000. Each LP gets 4.5% of that \$30,000 which is \$1350. \$1350 from a \$50,000 investment is a return of 2.7%. To get to 18% return, divide 18 by 2.7 and you get 6.6. Therefore, the initial investment needs to return 6.6 times what it did to get to 18% for the LPs. 6.6 times 10% of the initial profit equals 66%. The fund needs to produce profits of 66% to earn LPs their 18% internal rate of return.

Well this certainly would have been easier to solve if I knew I could just up an initial investment to make the math work however I wanted to.
