Singapore maintains growth in asset management industry

Singapore has emerged as a key hedge fund centre in close competition with Hong Kong. Hedge fund managers and assets under management are growing and have returned to pre-crisis levels.


The growth of hedge funds in Singapore is attributed to several factors: tax incentives for fund managers, licensing exemptions for certain fund managers and easy access to Asia’s growing pool of investors.

Other factors that play an important role include Singapore’s stable economy, its workforce, the central bank’s reasonable industry regulations, a pro-business environment and good infrastructure.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is responsible for regulation.
