MIPJR NEWS: A Singapore-based investment company has unveiled a US$100m fund to invest in IP in the animation, games and computer graphics sectors.

DCH Capital announced here in Cannes its DCH Media Fund, through which it intends to invest in media companies, coproduction projects and what it called "media hub infrastructure."

"DCH Capital's Media Fund was launched to support the creation and development or co-development of intellectual properties under the animation, games and computer graphics sectors of the creative cluster including new and emerging media," said DCH's director of investments, Karuna Muthu.

The fund will be based in Singapore, focusing on the funding of production companies and/or their projects or the lease of production equipment for film and television projects. DCH added it is already evaluating coproduction opportunities in projects "that merit production in New Zealand and Singapore".
