09:00-12:00, 8 January 2020


China asset managers looking to raise offshore capital have more choices than ever before over the location of their offshore fund vehicle. Historically, in Asia, the Cayman Islands has been the preferred jurisdiction for raising an offshore funds, attracting capita from international investors in Asia, the US and other parts of the world. The Cayman Islands is a common fund jurisdiction and one that many investors are familiar with.However, in Asia, both Singapore and Hong Kong now offer local fund regimes that enable a manager to raise capital using fund vehicles in these locations. Further, Luxembourg is also a common jurisdiction to establish an offshore fund that may be looking to attract European investors. Our team have been working with a wide array of opportunities with China backed offshore investment funds and in this round table discussion we will share the trends of China asset managers establishing offshore funds; the benefits of each particular type of fund structure as well as the tax implications and key considerations. The session will also cover: 

  • An outline of the various fund structures which and the rise of the alternative fund platforms in Hong Kong and Singapore. We will in particular highlight the new comprehensive tax exemption for funds in Hong Kong which takes effect from 1 April 2019. 
  • The key considerations around investment on different types of assets favoured by China backed investment funds
  • US tax implications which might arise from the level of the fund, general partners and limited partners.
  • Key considerations for investing into the China Greater Bay Area in view of the growing opportunities in the region.
