Singapore To Look At Hedge, Private Equity Regulation

Apr 22 2010 | 12:11pm ET

Eight years after setting new rules for alternative investments in an effort to lure hedge fund and private equity managers, Singapore is giving its regulatory structure a once-over.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore will launch a public consultation on its hedge fund and private equity rules in the next two weeks, making good on a pledge last year to amend its “regulatory approach as appropriate.”

Currently, hedge fund managers in the city-state do not need a capital-markets license if they manage money for 30 or fewer “qualified” investors.

“MAS adopts an open and consultative approach with the industry, and remains committed to building Singapore as a fund management and alternative investment hub,” it said. The MSA and Singapore’s JTC Corp. are currently touting its Nepal Hill neighborhood as a Southeast Asian answer to Greenwich, Conn., and Mayfair in London.
