New Seminar

Overview

The Government has been taking a number of step to revitalize the Hong Kong’s fund platform, such as Unified Fund Exemption Legislation which took effect from 1 April 2019; enhancement to the Open-Ended Fund Company regime in September 2020 and introduction of the Limited Partnership Fund regime.
