Singa­pore VCC Guide
The Singa­pore Vari­able Cap­it­al Com­pany (VCC) is a new cor­por­ate struc­ture for in­vest­ment funds con­sti­tuted un­der the Vari­able Cap­it­al Com­pan­ies Act, which took ef­fect in Janu­ary 2020. It is the first fund-spe­cif­ic en­tity to be launched in Singa­pore and it is in­ten­ded to strengthen Singa­pore’s po­s­i­tion as a lead­ing Asi­an fund man­age­ment centre.Over the past 20+ months the CMS Singa­pore funds team have taken the time to un­der­stand the leg­al and op­er­a­tion­al prac­tic­al­it­ies of launch­ing, clos­ing and op­er­at­ing a VCC fund, which go far bey­ond the VCC Act it­self. As such, this guide re­flects our team’s col­lect­ive hands-on ex­per­i­ence of the VCC gained over mul­tiple VCC fund form­a­tion man­dates.The pur­pose of this guide is there­fore to provide an over­view of the VCC and its key fea­tures, as well as of the VCC es­tab­lish­ment pro­cess. It also ad­dresses some of the VCC ques­tions that have been fre­quently asked of us by both man­agers and in­vestors alike.
