Article 22 of the Interim Measures for the Regulation of Private Investment Funds, issued by the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) on 21 August 2014, specifies that if a private fund manager manages different types of private funds, it is required to adhere to the principle of professional management. A manager that manages different private funds that could give rise to a funneling of benefits or a conflict of interests is required to establish a mechanism to prevent the same.

Following the reversion of the oversight of private securities investment funds and private equity investment funds to the CSRC, the measures served as the overarching document for the regulation of private funds, and the principle of professional management that the measures specified was mainly addressed at private fund managers that manage different types of private funds.
