What does your typical workday look like?
No two days are alike, and this is what makes my work interesting! Nonetheless, my scope of work includes but is not limited to sourcing private credit opportunities via continuous engagement with various entities such as banks, originators, and private credit funds. My role also involves following up with the latest financial market developments to formulate investment theses, and curate a portfolio aligned to the team’s investment mandate.
What is your perception of GIC before joining and after joining?
I always knew GIC was one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds. It is only when I joined GIC that I realised its full scale and stature in the market. In fact, GIC invests in more than 40 countries globally across asset classes and businesses and recently set up its 11th office in Sydney. Also, I am impressed by the diversity of talent in the organisation and the broad exposure offered.
What has been the most interesting or exciting project you’ve worked on?
Conducting due diligence on an AI-based consumer loan origination company from Israel! We had to analyse every single loan originated to date and to verify the company’s technological edge via innovative machine learning algorithms. The team concluded the due diligence by having our investment team do an on-site visit to the company in Israel.
How would you describe the learning & development culture at GIC?
My managers have been incredibly supportive. I am presented with opportunities that allow me to develop my investment skills and knowledge. GIC provides an environment that encourages us to learn from each other across the enterprise. The collaboration across different departments and divisions enables such opportunities to take place.
What advice would you give to candidates who are looking to join GIC?
Be curious and resourceful and take initiative. Curiosity pushes people to think beyond the given scenarios and teaches people to exercise critical thinking rather than accept the status quo. Keep yourself abreast of business and industry developments via sell-side research reports and financial news.
