MAS loosens restriction for employees investing in their own fund07 August 2018 / AsiaThe MAS has confirmed that “Investment Professionals” who don’t fall within MAS’ definition of an Accredited Investor (A/I) can invest in their employer’s funds. Previously, only employees meeting the A/I thresholds were able to invest. Although some have suggested that the changes don’t go far enough, they are nonetheless welcome as they enable defined employees to have ‘skin in the game’ and for their interests to be more aligned with those of their employer.
