Singapore as an alternative fund hub

Over the last two decades, Singapore has emerged as one of Asia’s preeminent asset management hubs. Global and Asian investors have had significant exposure to Singapore investment platforms and structures, especially funds with an Asia-Pacific mandate.

Singapore is often used as a fund investment platform to hold portfolio investments in China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia, Japan and Korea. In the webinar held in Mandarin on Tuesday, 15 September 2020, we shared insights on what makes Singapore an attractive asset management hub and fund domicile/holding platform for investments into Asia-Pacific jurisdictions. The session covered the following topics:

  • Overview of the asset management industry in Singapore
  • Types of fund management licenses
  • Tax implications and incentives available for fund managers
  • Commonly used fund vehicles, including Variable Capital Companies 
  • Tax schemes 13R & 13X
