Oakbridge supports open-ended crypto fund to establish in Jersey


Oakbridge along with Walkers’ Jersey Investment Funds & Corporate practice group have supported the launch of DeFiance Capital’s liquid token fund to be set up in Jersey.

DeFiance Capital was founded in 2020 in Singapore by Arthur Cheong and has made many successful investments across DeFi, Web3 gaming and the infrastructure space.

The fund’s investment objective is to generate superior compounded return over the medium to long term by investing in public crypto assets with great fundamentals and growth potential.

The fund benefits from Jersey’s attractive Jersey Private Fund regime, which coupled with the Singapore/Jersey double taxation agreement, makes Jersey a great location for Singapore fund managers setting up this type of fund.

Arthur Cheong from DeFiance commented: “We were delighted with the speed to market which we achieved – the JFSC, our service providers and lawyers are very professional and did a great job.”

Alex Smyth, Director Oakbridge said: “We were delighted to help support DeFiance launch their fund and work with Walkers and BTPLaw.  It is great for Jersey, DeFiance chose the island as its domicile and utilised the Jersey Private Fund, it demonstrates international confidence in our domicile and our agility to manage this alternative fund.”
