Negotiating Private Equity Fund Terms: A Closer Look at the New ILPA Model Limited Partnership Agreements

KL Gates Hosted Event
Date: 24 February and 3 March 2021
Location: via Webinar

With the Hong Kong Government's recent revamp of the Hong Kong partnership ordinance (Cap. 637), we thought it timely to take a closer look at the Institutional Limited Partners Association's (ILPA) efforts to streamline and modernize negotiations between general partners and limited partners.

The ILPA publicly released their “Emerging Manager Toolkit,” which is a comprehensive package of documents designed for private equity and venture capital managers that want to start fundraising quickly and attract qualified limited partner capital from ILPA members. The “star” of the toolkit is ILPA’s model limited partnership agreements.

Scott Peterman, Sook Young Yeu, and Margaret Niles will “walk through” the key provisions of ILPA’s new model limited partnership agreements over the following two sessions.
