Singapore Is the “Go-To” City for Private Equity Managers

Singapore — (SBWIRE) — 02/10/2022 — Singapore is not just a global gateway for investment managers but also an important fundraising portal, which has made it a go-to city for private equity managers from all over the world. Variable Capital Companies (VCC) – a new corporate entity structure – is considered to be something of a game-changer for the investment industry, providing a wealth of options when it comes to flexibility and cost savings. The successful launch of the VCC in Singapore has proven to be a catalyst for growth and there has even been a wave of funds that have been redomiciled to Singapore from other locations, such as the Cayman Islands, as a result. This appetite for positive change has shown the value of evolution, something that Singapore also plans to apply to regulatory development and sustainable digital capabilities as it continues to position itself as a go-to city for private equity managers going forward.
