According to recent statistics, the total Alternative Assets under Management (AUM) is predicted to reach US$17.16tn in 2025 with Asia representing a large component of this growth. More specifically, China’s asset management industry has grown rapidly in recent years and still promises significant upside potential. In light of this, Vistra will be hosting the first in a series of webinars designed to help China-based asset managers navigate all aspects related to the planning and raising of capital for a USD offshore fund. Ongoing topics will range from the choice of jurisdictions, offshore fund set up, global LP investor demand, and tax considerations just to name a few.

In our upcoming webinar on 17th June, our subject matter expert and distinguished guest speakers from KPMG and Eaton Partners will provide information around the following key topics:

•    What are the unified fund exemption regime in HK & PRC tax issues you should consider before starting a USD fund?
•    What is the value of outsourcing fund administration given the increasingly complex regulatory requirements and transparency demands from international LPs? 
•    What are the fundraising opportunities and challenges for China GPs during COVID? 
•    What are key factors influencing international LPs’ decisions to invest?
