Managing Director

Real Estate​


As Head of North America Funds & Co-investments in the Real Estate department, Kristin oversees GIC’s Americas Funds programme and data centre sector and sits on the Regional Investment Committee. Based in the San Francisco office, her team focuses on private equity real estate investments spanning various sub-sectors such as industrial and life sciences. 

Outside of work, Kristin embraces a life full of excitement and adventure. With a bustling family of seven, including a husband working long hours, three elementary school children, and two dogs, her days are packed with joyous chaos. In her free time, Kristin enjoys the simple pleasures of reading, running, and soaking up the great outdoors.

Why did you decide to join GIC?

I joined GIC during the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. Given the volatility at that time, I was drawn to GIC’s long-term investment strategy. Initially, I viewed GIC as a stable and sleepy investment firm, but to my delight, I discovered an organisation that was innovative, forward-thinking, and brimming with entrepreneurial spirit. GIC proved to be far more entrepreneurial and agile than I had anticipated. 

What does your typical workday look like?

Every day is a new adventure packed with exciting challenges! My mornings kick-off with our partner based in the United States, where we discuss our data centre investments in Europe. With numerous joint ventures across the globe, it is always an exciting conversation.  

Following this, I head into the office for back-to-back internal and external meetings, punctuated by a speedy lunch or coffee break. As the afternoon rolls in, I dive into preparing investment memos or analysing prospective deals. Wrapping up towards the end of the day, I pack up quickly and head home to spend quality time over dinner with my beloved family. 

What do you like most about working here?

What I love most about my job is the constant challenge it presents. No two days or deals are the same, which keeps me on my toes. While I can always draw on my prior experiences, each new fact pattern brings fresh insights and learning opportunities. I also enjoy working with my colleagues. We share a strong bond and work together as a close-knit team. Over the past several years, we have increasingly hired junior talent—it is extremely rewarding to work with them and see them grow over time. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion continues to be a key area of focus at GIC. We have formed diversity groups across the organisation and within investment groups, and are making progress in how we recruit, hire, retain, and grow employees openly and inclusively. 

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

The journey of learning and development is an ongoing one. I have had the chance to wear many hats over the past decade at GIC. From investing in public stocks to funds and data centres, I have had diverse experiences that have broadened my horizons and enriched my skill set. The organisation is dedicated to nurturing our growth and development, offering a range of training opportunities to help us reach our full potential. For instance, I had the privilege of participating in the GIC Women Leadership Programme, which equipped me with tools to identify my strengths and lean into them to achieve my goals.
