IMAS Lunchtime Talk Series - Dawn of the Asian UCITs? The State of Play for the Singapore VCC

Mr Han Ming Ho, Partner and Ms Josephine Law, Counsel of Sidley Austin LLP will co-present on the proposed corporate investment funds regime that was first introduced to the market by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) by way of a consultation paper in 2017. The session will include a brief recap of the original proposal in 2017 which will be followed by a comprehensive update on MAS’ response and first reading of the Variable Capital Companies (VCC) Bill on 10 September 2018.
 
After a consultation process run by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the VCC Bill was passed in Parliament on 1 October 2018. It is expected to come into effect in 2019 following the legislative process. The new VCC framework is intended to offer asset managers in Singapore greater flexibility and lower costs by providing new structuring options for investment funds.
 
Han Ming and Josephine will share insights about the VCC’s key features and how these features will benefit asset managers in Singapore.
