Limited Partnership Funds (LPF), a new fund regime that has commenced operation in 2020, allows private funds to be registered in Hong Kong as the form of limited partnerships. Before the Limited Partnership Funds Ordinance was introduced, only funds that are in the form of unit trusts and open-ended fund companies were allowed. Yet, these kinds of requirements provide no flexibility for the private funds industry. Following the LPF in HK, fund managers can now choose to set up funds in Hong Kong as a limited partnership.
To set up Limited Partnership Funds in HK, multiple conditions have to be met. For instance, the name of the fund needs to fulfill the naming requirements under the LPFO and It needs to have a registered office in Hong Kong. Setting up a LPF in HK is now extremely competitive primarily because the fee is now relatively low compared to other jurisdictions. The most attractive point is that all the LPF setup procedures can be handled in Hong Kong, saving the time and cost spent.
