Economics & Investment Strategy

Our team articulates GIC’s strategic outlook, determines asset exposures and benchmarks, implements new return streams and investment models, and optimises the risk-reward of the GIC Portfolio.

We manage the Total Portfolio to earn sustainable returns over the long-term, and enable the flexibility to navigate the path over the shorter term.

We handle GIC’s long-term Policy Portfolio, medium-term asset allocation, as well as capital allocation to internal active strategies. Working with various investment teams and business functions, we formulate the right policy parameters and structures, and manage our Policy and Active Portfolios to achieve good long-term returns.
