HONG KONG

Hong Kong, as one of the oldest and largest financial centers in Asia, has a thriving Private Equity and Real Estate community made up of a mix of home grown and international managers. Hong Kong has typically served as a gateway to China and as a home for large pan-Asia funds. Where China focused funds are concerned many managers will incorporate a Hong Kong based entity to assist with fund management, as a liaison with Hong Kong based service providers and also for tax purposes.

Known as the gateway to one of the world’s largest Private Equity and Real Estate markets, Hong Kong truly comes into its own as a center for Private Equity and Real Estate fund management. Whilst managers predominately make use of Cayman as the domicile for their funds at present (and Hong Kong or BVI for Special Purpose Vehicles) the government is keen to improve the jurisdiction’s attractiveness. The profit tax exemption has recently been extended to Private Equity funds and consideration is being given to Hong Kong domiciled fund structures. This, along with other legislation in discussion, its proximity to China and a progressive regulator will ensure Hong Kong’s relevance to the industry for years to come.
