Given the geo political tension and CIFUS regulations?
Jul 12, 2023
There are many Chinese investors all around the world who are not citizens of China and who are excellent limited partners. Chinese citizens have various restrictions from China and from other governments, including currency controls and restrictions on access to information, such as CFIUS, that make it difficult to accept them as limited partners in funds outside of China. As a result, Chinese citizens should be carefully vetted before being admitted as a limited partner in funds outside of China, examining the exact regulatory and currency regulations. Due to the increased complexity, Chinese citizens do not make ideal limited partners for funds outside of China when less cumbersome alternatives are present.
