Being an industry pioneer in Brunei, we have had the opportunity to advise a number of international financial institutions in their applications for licences to enable them to set up their presence in Brunei. Our team has an in-depth and extensive working experience dealing with Brunei’s regulatory authorities in relation to licensing applications.

Our advisory on licence applications covers –

  • banking, fund management, insurance and trust company business activities
  • registration of collective investment schemes (Shariah compliant and non-Shariah compliant funds)
  • establishment of most appropriate vehicle for mutual funds and licensed companies


Our advisory role is an extension of our two core business services, where we coordinate the advice, provide guidance on the relevant legislation, connect the clients with the regulators and the local professional service providers where appropriate.
