The issue of private equity firms raising larger funds is "something that we regularly wrestle with when looking (to invest with) groups," said Ian Aaker, principal in the San Diego office of alternative investment consulting firm StepStone Group.

It is often much more difficult to generate outsized returns investing in larger companies. "It's easier to change the direction of a destroyer than a battleship," Mr. Aaker said.
There is stiffer competition for larger transactions, and bigger deals often go through auction processes that increase prices, he explained. What's more, management teams are better in larger companies, so changing its course could be tricky, Mr. Aaker said.
