The author then explains the interaction of these tax regimes and recently promulgated regulations on typical investment structures, distills the rules into analytical principles for reviewing investments by sovereign wealth funds in the U.S., and provides examples of typical fact patterns and how they are affected by these tax regimes and principles.
