Registered and licensed fund management companies, financial advisers and funds are under continuous market and regulatory pressure. This, coupled with the dynamic nature of the industry – with its tightening regulatory environment, accelerating pace, and volatile markets – constantly challenges them to stay on top of their game.



Managing a fund is a complex and a multi-faceted task; choosing the right service provider and adviser can be crucial in delivering your strategy. Fund managers need the right level of support and advice in relation to considerations such as where they base and organise their operations, domicile their funds, target and service prospective investors. 

Being part of a well-regulated sector, fund managers need to balance the need to pursue profits and respect compliance obligations.

How we can support


Coupled with the technical expertise, industry knowledge and rich experience garnered from serving more than 150 funds and MAS-regulated entities, we understand your business models and are able to support fund managers across all aspects of the fund lifecycle. 

We perform audit, tax and advisory works, and also support fund managers in their financial reporting and compliance matters. This includes routine but critical backend tasks like accounting, payroll/ HR management, IT management, infrastructure planning and set up, as well as advising our clients on best corporate secretarial practices and corporate governance arrangements. 

This allows us to be trusted business advisors to your business needs and enables us to give timely, relevant and practical advice to support the achievement of your investment goals.
