Singapore has distinguished itself as a prominent global financial services centre through its reputation, strategic location, stable government, robust tax and regulatory environment, and exceptionally efficient yet cost-effective legal and financial ecosystem.

As per the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), Singapore has more than SGD 3.4 trillion assets under management and more than 890 registered and licensed fund managers. In addition, to position Singapore as a leading fund domiciliation hub, MAS and Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) launched the new Variable Capital Companies (VCC) framework in January 2020 to provide a new corporate structure for investment funds, which emulates the best features of similar corporate fund vehicles prevalent globally.

Please join Dhruva Advisors Singapore and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld for an informative webinar where the panelists will discuss key tax and legal features of the VCC regime with a special focus on fundraising from investors based in the United States. We look forward to taking you through the below topics and take your questions.
