Why did you decide to join GIC?

GIC partnered with my junior college in Singapore to offer an internship and I completed a short stint at GIC at the end of my first year of junior college. During my internship, I was impressed by the culture, passion, and warmth of the GIC staff that I interacted with. The work was also fascinating as it involved staying on top of current events and learning about different companies around the world. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to apply for the GIC Scholarship Programme and was fortunate to be awarded the scholarship. The year I graduated from university in 2006 also coincided with the inaugural class of the GIC Professionals Programme, which is still going strong today.

What does your typical workday look like?

Every day is truly different, but the core of my job is to ensure that my team delivers the best execution for GIC’s portfolio managers. This means continually striving to be world-class in terms of our talent, technology platforms, as well as external relationships. I spend my time mentoring my team members, overseeing projects aimed at moving our business forward, preparing for new or complex trades on the horizon, and building relationships with GIC’s trading counterparties.

What do you like most about working here?

I like that my work has a meaningful purpose, which is to preserve and enhance the international purchasing power of Singapore’s reserves over the long term. Furthermore, GIC’s teams are relatively small in proportion to our large assets under management, which means that every role in GIC carries a huge amount of responsibility and meaning. I have never once felt like I am just an anonymous cog in the machinery. GIC’s vision to be a leading global long-term investor also means that the work at hand is always challenging and interesting.

How would you describe the learning & development culture at GIC?

GIC School provides formal foundation courses throughout one’s career at GIC. The content at the more senior levels focuses on great people management and leadership, which I have found incredibly useful. On a day-to-day basis, GIC’s culture encourages us to share knowledge and learn from each other, making learning a daily occurrence. Lastly, GIC’s vast and strong external relationships means that we have ready access to industry experts and pioneers in certain fields. Personally, I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to work in GIC’s offices in Singapore, London, and New York, which have been very enriching experiences for me.

What you should know before joining GIC

Look no further if you plan on pursuing a career in finance. After spending over 17 years at GIC and interacting with people who have worked in various buy-side, sell-side, and fintech roles, I have concluded that GIC is one of the best places to be in the financial industry.
