Fund managers

Investment funds and their managers are coming under more regulatory scrutiny than ever before. The proactive support we provide means you can get on with what you do best in the knowledge that your regulatory issues are under control.

How Bovill Newgate can help

We help fund managers across the board, from hedge funds to real estate funds and those targeted at retail investors.  We know that each firm is different and has different needs.  So we can provide as little or as much help as you prefer.

When you start out we can give our views on whether you need to be licensed in Singapore/Hong Kong – and find the most suitable license, or exemption, for you.  For some, we will then take full ownership of the MAS/SFC application process – from preparation of compliance documentation and business plans, to liaising with MAS/SFC and making sure you are ready to be a licensed corporations.  For others, we will simply be on hand to answer any questions that you might have with the licensing process.

From there, you will have a dedicated consultant to help you manage your compliance obligations under MAS/SFC rules and regulations.  There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to our ongoing support – we’ll make sure that we understand your requirements before we customise our services to your needs.  We can prepare and update your compliance monitoring programme - and do the monitoring for you if you like.   We’ll tell you about any new regulations that you need to comply with, and help you to implement them.  We’ll be at the end of the telephone if you need to ask us anything.  And because we’re experts in European and US regulation too, we can also help you if you wish to do business there – whether it’s raising capital in Germany, opening a branch in the UK, or becoming an Exempt Reporting Adviser in the US.

We do this to allow you to focus on your core business, in the knowledge that your regulatory issues are under control.
