Clara legalOS

Setting up an ADGM SPV as your holding company is an attractive option for startup founders and their investors. Founders benefit from the low cost, speed, and simplicity that ADGM’s fully digitised incorporation process achieves, while investors are attracted by the investment flexibility and legal protections that ADGM’s regulatory environment provides. Before you get started with incorporating your ADGM SPV on the Clara platform, learn more about the benefits of an ADGM SPV.

Benefits of ADGM SPVs

Ease of incorporation and administration

The incorporation application, renewal filings and ongoing administration of an ADGM SPV is entirely digital and documents can be signed digitally. There are minimal annual obligations with no need to hold an annual shareholder meeting unless requested by the shareholders and reduced financial reporting requirements.

Flexible ownership structures

There is no minimum share capital and no maximum number of shares or shareholders for an ADGM SPV. There are no restrictions on the nationality of share ownership. An SPVs Articles of Association can be amended to include multiple classes of shares (voting, non-voting, preferred) allowing for shares with different voting, dividend and distribution rights.

Cost savings

An ADGM SPV does not need to rent physical office space and shareholder documents do not need to be attested and legalised. There is no requirement for any parties to be physically present or in the UAE. These factors represent significant cost savings for founders.

Attractiveness for investment

ADGM SPVs can issue convertibles such as SAFEs and convertible notes and ADGM recognises and enforces important investor and governance rights. This makes an ADGM SPV a strong launchpad for accessing capital from angel investors and VCs who can invest with confidence knowing that their investment is legally protected.
