Possibly - however it really depends on what kind of retirement funds/accounts are being contemplated, and where and how those funds/accounts are held. Country-specific regulations may also apply, as a general rule of thumb.

For example, Delaware-domiciled funds working with Decile Partners may be able to accept certain retirement funds via a certain type of trust company vendor (such as Strata Trust Company, a partner) - however, doing so takes additional setup on the part of the Fund, as well as the limited partner in question.

TL:DR - possible depending on jurisdiction and trust company (as applicable), but more complicated and may take longer process-wise. 
It would be an investment from the GP with a traditional IRA account (in the US) investing in a Delaware Fund.   Let me know if that makes sense and it sounds like we should reach out to Strata.

Just to clarify, is this a question regarding fulfilling a fund manager's GP commitment to the Fund? We have only seen limited partners invest into a Fund via Strata Trust Company thus far.
