An investment whereby limited partners provide capital, share in profits, have limited legal liability, and leave the management of the business to general partners. Can be tradable and listed on an exchange, packaged and sold by brokers and not exchange tradable, or marketable to other partners only. REITs (real estate investment trusts) are typically LPs. Most LPs provide both income and appreciation. Some are highly liquid and others not.
