Abstract: Although current academic thinking tells us that private equity investors are generally passive in the management of funds, Chinese private equity market is dominated by funds whose investors are relatively active. The interference of limited partners in a fund's management triggers internal conflicts between partners. This article examines the legal and practical reasons for this phenomenon. Based on extensive interviews with market participants, it is found that the agency problems, the legal weaknesses of limited partners under Chinese law and several regulatory constraints on China's private equity industry have influenced the decisions of investors to pursue active strategies in funds. This article also examines the effectiveness of the control rule and a few of the common private contractual arrangements in addressing the agency problem in the context of Chinese private equity funds, and suggests strategies to mitigate the problem.
