IBF webinar with PwC Academy : Understanding the new VCC framework

28 Oct 2020

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) launched the Variable Capital Companies (VCC) framework early this year to encourage more funds to be domiciled in Singapore and enhance Singapore's value as an international fund management centre.

The VCC is a new corporate structure that can be used for a wide range of investment funds and provides fund managers greater operational flexibility and cost savings. Fund managers will be able to constitute investment funds as VCCs across both traditional and alternative strategies, and as open-ended or closed-end funds.

Join us to find out more about this new corporate structure and familiarize yourself with its characteristics and regulatory requirements. Find out what is required to plan fund structures, operate VCCs or service VCCs.
