Temasek Holdings

Owned by the Government of Singapore and run by the wife of the Prime Minister Ho Ching (pictured), Temasek is an investment management company, in operation since 1974. With a team of more than 450 people managing $173bn in assets across Asia, the firm is a leading player in a burgeoning international financial hub. Its portfolio covers a wide range of sectors, including financial services, telecommunications, media, technology, transport, life sciences, energy and real estate. This year its portfolio grew to a record value, bolstered by a number of significant deals – not least the two percent stake the company took in leading Asian insurance firm AIA Group.

Our goal was to build a robust framework to maintain discipline and deliver value over the long term as a sustainable institution.
Ho Ching, Executive Director and CEO
