The liquidation process of Three Arrows Capital is going to move to Singapore next, if lawyers representing the British Virgin Islands (BVI)-based liquidators are successful, the Straits Times reported Friday.
- The Times reported that BVI-based Teneo has hired Singapore-based WongPartnership LLP to petition the High Court for provisional relief that would allow Teneo to administer Three Arrows’ assets in the city-state and subpoena co-founders Su Zhu and Kyle Davies.
- If Teneo’s lawyers are successful, Teneo would be able to secure Three Arrows’ assets in Singapore for the hedge fund’s creditors, lawyers who spoke to The Times said.
- One route that lawyers could take is to examine what fault the founders had in the fall of Three Arrows.
- Should the liquidators be able to prove that the collapse of Three Arrows was due to the mismanagement or misconduct of its co-founders, there might be a pathway to pursue seizing their assets for the benefit of creditors, lawyers said.
- Zhu is in the process of selling a house worth close to S$50 million (US$35 million), CoinDesk reported, and has a number of properties under both his and his wife’s name.
- Three Arrows’ over the counter trading desk, TPS Capital, is said to be cash-rich and will likely be included in the lawyers’ application.
- It is not known when the court will make its decision.
- The case is far from a sure thing, lawyers that spoke to CoinDesk have said, and Three Arrows will have a number of defenses available to them.
