GIC 40th Anniversary, Since 1981

Singapore
Singapore | Leading financial centre in Asia

2021 is the 40th anniversary of GIC.  In 1981, Singapore founding leaders, the late Lee Kuan Yew and Dr Goh Keng Swee, entrusted GIC (Government of Singapore Investment Corporation) with the mission to preserve and enhance the value of Singapore’s foreign reserves. The founding team built GIC from scratch – with the late Yong Pung How beginning his tenure with only a desk and an unusable telephone. 

Today, GIC has assets in over 40 countries and offices in 10 key financial cities with capabilities to invest across a wide range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, private equity, real estate, and infrastructure.

The late Lee Kuan Yew (1923-2015) is the Prime Minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990, and is recognised as the nation’s founding father.  He was appointed Minister Mentor in 2004 and stepped down in 2011, and was appointed Senior Advisor to the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC).  He passed away in 2015.  

The late Dr Goh Keng Swee (1918-2010) was the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore and known as the “economic architect” of Singapore and is recognised as the nation’s founding father.  He had held numerous portfolio, including Minister of Finance, Minister of Defence, Minister for Education, Chairman of Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Deputy Chairman of GIC.  He passed away in 2010.

“In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic ushered in one of the toughest economic times in modern history. Yet, the resulting severe sell-off in global risk assets reversed course in response to the unprecedented speed and scale of government policy interventions. 

Currently, with elevated asset valuations, more fragile fundamentals in the global economy and less policy room, we are cautious on the macro outlook. In contrast, we are positive on the micro prospects, given new areas of growth that are driven by increasing emphasis on sustainability, accelerating technological transformation, and growing needs for businesses to reconfigure their supply chain.

As GIC marks our 40th year in 2021, we remember the bold vision of our founding leaders, namely the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Dr Goh Keng Swee, who entrusted us with the mission to preserve and enhance the value of Singapore’s foreign reserves. We recommit ourselves to fulfil our mission of investing well for the long-term stability of Singapore’s finances.”
