Panel 3: Investment Structures & Legal Considerations

Our panellists examined the legal considerations for foreign direct investors and investment structures that can be explored for maximum efficiencies and gains in their investments in the Philippines. Based on considerations ranging from having a straightforward tax and regulatory regime, foreign investment entry controls, foreign exchange controls, cultural and geographic proximity, as well as types of available holding company structures, Singapore is a viable jurisdiction to set up holding company structures in.

Speaking in the panel were Attorney Kristin Charisse Siao, CPA, Partner, Villaraza & Angangco, Amanda Chen, Partner (Foreign Lawyer), Head of International China Practice, RHTLaw Asia, Eu Jin Yang, Partner, Co-Head of Corporate & Capital Markets, Head of Education Industry Group, RHTLaw Asia, as moderated by Attorney Lorybeth Baldrias, CPA of ONERHT.
