MAS to Introduce New Initiatives to Grow Investment Funds, Venture Capital, Private Equity and Family Offices in 2019

Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) will introduce 3 new initiatives to grow investment funds, venture capital & private equity and family offices in 2019.

” MAS to Introduce New Initiatives to Grow Investment Funds, Venture Capital, Private Equity and Family Offices in 2019 “

In 2019, MAS will introduce a new corporate structure, the Singapore Variable Capital Company (S-VACC) – for investment funds.  The proposed S-VACC framework is intended to cater to both open-ended and closed-end investment funds, and allow for segregation of assets and liabilities of sub-funds within an umbrella structure.

Currently, there are three types of structures used by investment funds in Singapore, unit trusts, companies formed under the Companies Act and companies formed under limited partnerships.

MAS will also simplify regulations to facilitate the activities of alternative investments in Venture Capital and Private Equity managers, which had increasingly attracted investments by sovereign wealth funds and pension funds.

The ecosystem for family offices will also be strengthened, through increasing the quality and capability of service providers of family offices such as lawyers, consultants and tax advisors.

The message was delivered by Ravi Menon, Managing Director, Monetary Authority of Singapore at the Nomura Investment Forum Asia on 5th June 2018.  The presentation is titled: “Connecting Global Markets, Supporting Asia’s Growth.”
