October 23, 2023

This policy brief outlines the needed amendments to enhance the utility of the existing legal and regulatory framework for structuring Uganda-domiciled private equity funds as a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) – the preferred vehicle for structuring private equity funds. The policy brief is a summary of an in-depth legal analysis that was undertaken by MMAKS Advocates as initiated by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) and commissioned by EAVCA, with support from the European Union (EU), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands, Kampala.
