Funds and Investment Management

Our Fund Management team advises clients on fund management and investment advisory services.

We regularly assist clients in establishing their businesses in Singapore and assist in applications and filings to the Monetary Authority of Singapore for a manager to commence fund management activity in Singapore. We advise on all aspects of our securities laws to which a fund manager is subject including ongoing compliance and business conduct requirements.

We also advise on the establishment of onshore and offshore investment funds, including assistance in the structuring of funds, development of fund terms, and negotiations with investors.

Downstream work includes fund restructurings as well as transactional and regulatory work as funds commence investment activities.

We also advise institutional investors investing into funds, particularly private equity funds.

Our clients range from global institutional fund managers, to smaller start-up managers. They manage funds that invest in various asset classes including private equity and hedge funds, as well venture capital and real estate funds.

Other clients include market participants in related industries such as private client and wealth management units of banks and other financial institutions, investment fund distributors, trustees, custodians and fund administrators.
