In a statement released on Friday, Singapore-based DeFiance claimed that CEO Arthur Cheong had “no visibility” into the financial statements or circumstances of Three Arrow Capital. He didn’t learn about the financial issues until the news emerged in June.
Additionally, Arthur Cheong established the business in 2020, which was completely different and independent from 3AC. DeFiance Capital further asserted that none of the assets it oversees was acquired from 3AC, its founders, or any of their affiliates and that Arthur Cheong is not a director of 3AC nor any of its affiliates nor involved in the management of 3AC.
