Guide to the Investment Limited Partnership: Ireland's new and Improved Option for Private Fund Sponsors
Ireland has recently modernised its Investment Limited Partnership fund structure with the aim of providing a flexible and tailored regime able to successfully compete with limited partnership options favoured in other private fund domiciles. This briefing is a high-level overview of the structure, its key features, parties and the establishment process.

We cover: 

  • Background
