V Wealth Capital Pte has failed to notify the MAS about a number of changes, which include the change of its principal place of business and the resignation of the company’s director. In addition, the company has not submitted a report to its auditors as required by the law and failed to update the MAS with a set of required information required by the regulator in the case of such a violation.

The CEO of the company and the directors of V Wealth have consistently failed to comply with the laws and regulations to which financial service companies in Singapore are required to adhere.

The move by the MAS could be relevant to clients and counterparties of V Wealth Capital Pte that have engaged in transactions with the firm. For the time being there is no confirmed information that the company has been making a market for brokers that are offering MSCI Indonesia Futures.
