As in many other advanced economies, corporate groups are an important part of Singapore’s business landscape. This Chapter provides a general overview of Singapore’s regulatory regime relating to corporate groups; while this regime arguably lacks a clear awareness of corporate groups as a distinct phenomenon that calls for specific and tailored regulation, it does contain features that may in some circumstances perform the function of corporate group regulation; examples include the regimes on related party transactions, director duties, and shareholder remedies.
