The regulator said in a press release that 3AC had no right to do business with more than 30 qualified investors and manage assets of no more than $183 million. Moreover, MAS says that 3AC failed to notify it of changes to directorships and shareholdings.
"Three Arrows Capital failed to inform MAS within the required timeline of changes in the directorships and shareholdings of its directors, Mr Su Zhu and Mr Kyle Livingston Davies."
The financial regulator says given that the recent events "call into question the solvency of the fund, MAS is assessing if there were further breaches by 3AC of its regulations.
The move comes after Voyager Digital said that Three Arrows Capital failed to repay 15,250 BTC and $350 million in USDC. The crypto broker added it was planning to perform legal remedies from 3AC.
