VCC is a legal entity type for all types of Singapore domiciled investment funds. A VCC can be formed as a single standalone fund, or as an umbrella fund with two or more sub-funds, with each sub-fund holding different assets and liabilities.

Please refer to the VCC legislation released by Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) for more information.

Singapore VCC provides flexibility in issuance and redemption of shares (at net asset value) without the approval of members/shareholders, as well as the payment of dividends. The ability to pay dividends from capital affords fund managers the flexibility to meet their dividend payment obligations. These features often make VCC an attractive structure for investment funds.

Here are a few prerequisites to incorporating a new VCC structure:

The VCC must be managed by a Permissible Fund Manager (e.g. a Singapore based licensed fund manager) . At least one director representing the fund manager must be a Singapore resident

  • At least one director of the VCC must be ordinarily resident in Singapore. This means that Singapore citizens, Permanent residents, or holders of an Employment Pass (subject to the Ministry of Manpower’s letter of consent), with a local residential address, may qualify;
  • The VCC must appoint a Singapore based company secretary and have a registered office in Singapore
  • The VCC must be subject to audit by a Singapore based auditor
  • The VCC must appoint a Singapore fund administrator if it is applying for the S13O/U Tax Incentive Schemes
