Stock funds are also known as equity funds in Singapore. Equity funds are mutual funds allowing an investor to purchase ownership in a Singapore company. Equity stocks also allow local and foreign investors to purchase stocks within a fund easier than purchasing securities. Singapore equity funds may be divided into several categories. One can distinguish the following types of equity funds in Singapore:

  • - growth funds,
  • - income funds,
  • - equity-income funds,
  • - hybrid funds,
  • - specialty funds,
  • - index funds.

What are the available equity funds in Singapore?

Singapore provides several types of equity funds available for foreign investors. Among the most popular equity funds in Singapore are:

  • - international equity funds and global equity funds, which allow investments in stocks outside Singapore,
  • - equity funds allowing investment in stocks of the largest companies in the world,
  • - medium and small equity funds allowing investors to invest in Singapore companies with medium and small market capitalization,
  • - private equity funds allowing investments in Singapore private companies,
  • - sector or industry equity funds that target specific areas.

Equity funds may also be traditional mutual funds and exchange funds in Singapore. Our specialists in company formation in Singapore will provide you information about setting up any type of equity fund.

The Singapore resident fund scheme

The resident fund scheme was enabled to encourage fund managers to set up their equity funds in Singapore. The scheme offers tax exemptions for specified incomes from the designated investments if they are Singapore tax residents and have a registered office within the city-state. In order to qualify for the resident fund scheme, the fund must have 50 million S$ size.

According to the Financial Sector Incentive Scheme (FSI), a fund management company established in Singapore may apply for a 10% concessionary income tax. Also, provided that certain conditions are met, a non-resident investor may be exempt from paying the income tax in Singapore.

For complete information about the advantages and legal requirements for setting up equity funds in Singapore please contact out consultants in company registration.
