A word from the Committee
by David Doerig, AIWM Treasurer
The first quarter of 2023 closed with top stories around the global banking systems – the acquisition of Credit Suisse by UBS, following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Silvergate Capital. The banking turmoil could continue with the latest news on Deutsche Bank to go on a panic-driven sell-off. In these times of heightened uncertainty, we’d like to remind all our members to ensure proper due diligence on the parties that they work with, and to ensure that there are various counterparties measures in place so that swift actions would be possible in case of averse news.
AIWM Regulatory & Compliance Update – 8 March 2023
In the first of our AIWM Regulatory & Compliance Update, our members got an update about the best practices around BCM, Technology & Cyber Hygiene, AML/CFT, as well as the latest taxation related updates for Fund Management Companies and Variable Capital Companies (VCC) including the latest measures from Budget 2023. A big Thank You to Waystone Compliance Solutions and EisnerAmper Singapore for your sharing that day. The presentation slides have been uploaded in the Member Area for your reference.
We have expanded our member offerings in March 2023!
We launched FinReg.SG, a regulatory search platform where you can search legal and regulatory financial regulations in multiple jurisdictions, including Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK, and retrieve the most relevant knowledge at one click! in partnership with Intelllex, we’ve curated in this section the most relevant Q&As on regulatory compliance for fund and asset managers. You can also share these Q&As with your clients for the purpose of investor education.
