We represent and advise local, regional, and global investment funds and fund managers to successfully structure, launch, and manage funds registered in Singapore. Our experience covers a wide range of fund structures (including under the new Variable Capital Company regime) and strategies (including those focussed on specific geographies, specific sectors, assets, or stage of companies). We have experience assisting fund managers through the life-cycle of an investment fund, from the structuring and establishment of the management entity, obtaining of an appropriate license or registration (including LFMC, RFMC, and VCFM) and advising on effective structures for fund vehicles, in sync with commercial objectives and underlying investment theses.
We also have significant experience assisting and advising portfolio companies, management teams, co-investors, and other participants in all aspects of private equity transactions. Our support extends to BAU legal needs for portfolio companies, fund formation & licensing of fund managers, and business reorganisation and restructuring transactions. We have built a reputation for our representation in key sectors such as technology (including Fintech, Life Sciences & HealthTech, and general Technology) as well as more traditional brick-and-mortar sectors.
Our Investment Funds team works closely with our Company Formation, Regulatory & Compliance, and Venture Capital, to advise clients on myriad transactions involving the deployment of private capital, usually through a regulated fund structure. We pride ourselves on understanding client needs intensively, providing strategic advice and leading, executing, and closing acquisitions, dispositions, financing transactions, and fund formation.
