Jungha is a Vice President in the Public Equities department and has been with GIC for over four years. As an investment analyst in our China Equities team, her main responsibilities are to identify investment opportunities in various sectors in China, including in healthcare, consumer and property, by working closely with portfolio managers to make recommendations on stocks.
Outside of work, Jungha enjoys long-distance running and reading.
Why did you decide to join GIC?
Graduating from my MBA program, I was looking for an asset manager with a long-term investment horizon and the patience to develop talents. In Asia, GIC has a strong reputation. What I learned about the organization only after joining was that GIC moves and changes very quickly. The decision-making process is also more efficient than in other multinational organizations I have worked in.
What does your typical workday look like?
My day usually starts before 9am with news and emails, followed by observing price actions of stocks once the market opens. I provide commentaries to the team and make recommendations, if any. After that, it’s mainly meetings, calls and thinking about portfolio positionings. I usually have a quick lunch on my own or with one or two colleagues, and go for a workout in the evenings after work.
What do you like most about working here?
I like the collegial environment in GIC, the long-term investment horizon, and ability to invest in a very broad universe. I feel that we are a culturally diverse group and you won’t feel excluded as a non-Singaporean. Female employees are equally respected and empowered at work.
How would you describe the learning & development culture at GIC?
My colleagues are extremely bright and hardworking. Hence I’ve been learning tremendously from them – I can get advice from senior portfolio managers with decades of investment experience and peers with expertise in various sectors.
