Why did you decide to join GIC?

After working in the banking industry for more than a decade, I sought an opportunity for longer term growth and I had always known about GIC’s dedication to the personal and professional growth of its people.  

What does your typical workday look like?

My morning routine involves dedicating the first hour and a half to tasks that require focus and clear thinking. Later in the day, I may have Zoom calls or in-person meetings, followed by a working lunch with partners or a casual lunch with team members. In the afternoon, I typically reserve the time after 5pm for deep work, leaving other hours for meetings or site visits. Following the advice from a mentor, I have also incorporated evening reading time in my daily routine, which has become an enjoyable moment for me in a day. 

What do you like most about working here?

GIC’s ability to consistently stay at the top of the game across sectors and products is just remarkable. I am grateful for the resources provided by the company, which have allowed us to constantly expand our knowledge and skills.  

For instance, we had the opportunity to study China’s Advanced Research and Manufacturing (ARM) sectors last year. During the study, we gained insights into the space requirements of companies in industries such as 3D printing, advanced materials, life sciences, and electric vehicle design. We also had the chance to interact with these companies and hear about their stories and aspirations. These interactions gave us a front-row seat to witness the dynamic ARM sectors in China and work with our partners to create the next-generation workspace for their rapidly growing businesses.

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

Over the past four years, I have had a transformative learning experience at GIC. During this time, I have gained extensive knowledge in the different real estate sectors and developed many new partnerships. On a personal level, I have learned the value of humility and moderation and the fulfilment of achieving team success over individual accomplishment. I have also learned the importance of creating an open, transparent, and trusting team environment that supports collective growth and development. 

What you should know before joining GIC

Having a long-term mindset is essential to navigate today’s uncertain world. In GIC, we expand our investment universe and widen our perspectives through building enduring relationship with our partners and putting long term strategies in practice.
