Temasek SWF, from $260 Million to $283 Billion 

Singapore | Leading financial centre in Asia

Temasek, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, was incorporated in 1974 to commercially manage 35 companies at an initial portfolio valued at $260 million (S$354 million), acquired from the Singapore Minister for Finance.  The portfolio comprised of 35 companies including Development Bank of Singapore (DBS), Keppel Shipyard, Neptune Orient Lines, Singapore Airlines and Singapore Zoological Garden.  Today, Temasek is one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund with $283 billion assets under management.

Globally, Temasek have 13 offices in 9 countries, including regional offices, setting up 2 new offices in 2020: in Brussels, Belgium, and Shenzhen, China.  The Brussels office helps to build deeper institutional relations, track socio-economic developments, and gain insights into key policy areas within the European Union while Shenzhen will tap on growth opportunities in the Greater Bay Area, and complement existing presence in Beijing and Shanghai.

 

Dilhan Pillay, Chief Executive Officer, Temasek International:

“As a provider of catalytic capital, Temasek can help companies thrive, and tackle the global challenges of our time. We will deploy financial capital to stimulate innovation and growth; develop human capital to uplift capabilities and enhance potential; enable natural capital and foster sustainable solutions; and seed social capital to transform lives for a more inclusive and resilient world.”

 

Lim Boon Heng, Chairman, Temasek Holdings:

“Our world has changed. In the post-COVID era, it is not enough to bounce back to “business as usual”. Governments, businesses and communities must pull together, and bounce forward into a climate friendly norm for better lives and more sustainable livelihoods.”

Mr Nagi Hamiyeh, Joint Head of Investment and Head of Portfolio Development:
Nagi Hamiyeh, Temasek Joint Head of Investment and Head of Portfolio Development

“It was a record year of investments and divestments for Temasek. It was quite remarkable, given the pandemic lockdowns, and the various impediments on travel and face-to-face meetings. In a sense, we were quite fortunate, as we had built deep and trusted relationships which stood the test of the pandemic restrictions. That has enabled us to maintain a healthy pace of investment activities and engagement with our portfolio companies all round.

“We continue to be guided by the structural trends we identified, as we work purposefully to strengthen our portfolio amidst the disruptions we have seen. Some of our large investments will help reposition our portfolio companies for a post-COVID world. Our aim is to build a forward looking and resilient portfolio – one that delivers sustainable economic growth, and at the same time, enables the transition to a low carbon economy.”

 

Mr Mukul Chawla, Joint Head of Telecommunications, Media & Technology and Joint Head of North America:
Mukul Chawla, Temasek Joint Head of Telecommunications, Media & Technology and Joint Head of North America

“The pandemic has accelerated the longer term trends that shape our investment posture. This is especially so for the Digitisation trend. The shift to work from home has generated demand for online services, payments, digital health and technology platforms. Driven by these strong tailwinds, some of our unlisted companies took the opportunity to go public and prepare themselves to move ahead more ambitiously.

“As investors in both private and public markets, I am encouraged that we could bring value to contribute to the growth journeys of these companies. More importantly, I especially value the strong partnerships we have with our portfolio companies and their management teams. These give us the opportunity to grow with them in the years ahead.”

 

Ms Neo Gim Huay, Managing Director, Climate Change Strategy:
Neo Gim Huay, Temasek Managing Director, Climate Change Strategy

“As an institution, we continue to deliver on our net zero carbon footprint commitment, including measuring and managing our indirect emissions from electricity use and business travel. We encourage our staff to support and participate in tree planting and land restoration efforts to foster climate ownership. As a steward, we catalyse solutions and work with partners to build a more sustainable planet.

As an investor, we have integrated climate considerations in our investment processes, and have introduced carbon pricing in our analyses. We started with a high hurdle of US$42 per tonne of CO2 equivalent, partly because we want to lean in for a faster transition to a carbon neutral world.

Across our portfolio, we remain committed to halving our 2010 carbon emissions by 2030. This is an intermediate goal towards our ambition for net zero emissions by 2050. To do this, we are actively investing in climate-aligned opportunities, and enabling technological and nature-based solutions that are carbon negative. These efforts complement and supplement the decarbonisation efforts of our portfolio companies.”

 

Mr Fock Wai Hoong, Managing Director, Investment, Telecommunications, Media & Technology and Managing Director, Investment, South East Asia:
Fock Wai Hoong, Temasek Managing Director, Investment, Telecommunications, Media & Technology and Managing Director, Investment, South East Asia

“We are optimistic that economic growth will be strong this year and next. Vaccination programmes across the US, Europe, and China are likely to stimulate and sustain broad-based economic activity. Back in Singapore, the manufacturing, financial and technology sectors remain resilient.

It has been a remarkable year for the world last year, and for Temasek too. Many of our colleagues volunteered to help in the fight against COVID-19. Some helped in frontline efforts like swab operations in the dorms. Others helped to address gaps in supply chains for food, medical supplies, and in little known items like autosamplers for pooled wastewater testing. Yet others spent time looking ahead to anticipate potential needs or shortfalls, and worked to find solutions ahead of time.

All of us have had to learn on the fly, and yet we continue to carry the full load of our day jobs. We joked that we had both day and night jobs as we engaged increasingly as a global team across time zones. But all in, we were happy and privileged to have the opportunity to make a difference to the larger community.

“Yes, we were also very busy working, both to deliver strongly on our investment mandate, and to deepen the resilience of our portfolio during a very challenging period. We have bonded together as OneTemasek, and I am confident that Temasek is well positioned to capture new opportunities. I certainly see opportunities to partner our portfolio companies and our wider network to bounce forward together, stronger from this pandemic, and more ready to transition faster to a better and more sustainable future.”
