Jumping on the Bandwagon: To VCC or Not?

Date:    21 February 2020, Friday
Time:    9am - 11am
 Nexia TS Office, 80 Robinson Road, #25-00, Singapore 068898

Riding on the coattail of Singapore’s economic stability and friendly taxation laws, the coming to fruition of the VCC framework appears to have all local fund managers ready to jump on the latest bandwagon that offers greater operational flexibilities and opportunities.

But the musing question lies deep – Whilst the VCC aims to encourage more funds to be domiciled in the city-state, to cement our position as an international fund management hub and to add on to an already impressive existing arsenal of legal vehicles for investment funds, let’s not jump the gun and start the race without knowing what is ahead!
