Why did you decide to join GIC?
Having spent over a decade in the banking industry, I was looking for an opportunity with long term growth prospects, and I had always been aware of GIC’s commitment 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 developed a habit of reading in the late evening, which has become an enjoyable moment for me at the end of the day.
What do you like most about working here?
GIC’s ability to consistently evolve and remain at the forefront of various sectors and products is truly remarkable. I am grateful for the resources that the company has provided, which have enabled me to continuously expand my knowledge and skills.
For instance, I had the opportunity to study China’s Advanced Research and Manufacturing (ARM) sectors last year. Through the study, I have gained valuable insights into the space requirements of companies in industries such as 3D printing, advanced materials, life sciences, and electric vehicle design. This experience gave me a first-hand view of the dynamic sectors in China and allowed us to work with our partners to create next-generation workspace for their rapidly growing businesses.
How would you describe the learning & development culture at GIC?
Over the past four years, my experience at GIC has been transformative. I have gained extensive knowledge in the different real estate sectors and developed new partnerships. On a personal level, I have learned the value of humility, moderation and the importance of creating an open, transparent, and trusting team environment that supports collective growth and development for everyone as a team.
