What is a VCC?


The Variable Capital Company (VCC) is a much awaited new corporate structure for investment funds constituted under the Variable Capital Companies Act which took effect on 14 January 2020. It is highly flexible and can accommodate the creation of sub-funds with either open-ended or closed-ended fund strategies for retail and non-retail funds. The introduction of VCC into the asset management market will further augment Singapore as a global financial centre.

Key benefits of a VCC
