It’s been more than six months since the new corporate structure for investment funds, The Variable Capital Company (VCC), was implemented in Singapore, and it’s become quite the buzz. My previous blog—Singapore’s VCC Framework: 4 Facts You Need to Know—highlights the details of this new structure.

The VCC offers many advantages:

  • Variable capital structure that allows for flexibility in its issuance and redemption of shares and its ability to pay dividends
  • Standalone or an umbrella fund set up
  • Open-ended and closed-end fund options
  • The ability to re-domicile existing overseas investment funds with comparable structures by transferring existing registration to Singapore as VCCs
