SINGAPORE: GIC has reported a 20-year annualised real return of four per cent last year, compared to 3.9 per cent in the previous year. These are returns on the foreign reserves of the Singapore government. Investment analytics firm HedgeSpa estimates that the GIC policy portfolio returned 14 per cent in the fiscal year ended March 2013 -- that is on par with the 13.4 per cent return made by Norway's Government Pension Fund, the world's largest sovereign wealth fund. Starting from April 2013, GIC has also implemented a new investment framework to manage its portfolio. GIC is anticipating a more challenging and complex investment environment ahead. It is therefore positioning its portfolio to focus on key asset classes that generate returns over the long term, but may be more risky or illiquid in the short term. Passive investing aims to largely mirror the returns of a market, usually through an index-tracking fund. On the other hand, active investing includes picking assets that outperform the market, and buying and selling more or less of certain assets. GIC's new framework consists of an "active portfolio" of skill-based strategies which aims to outperform the policy portfolio. This active portfolio is limited by an undisclosed risk budget set by the GIC board, and is overseen by a separate investment board that has been created. Bernard Lee, CEO of HedgeSpa, said: "This type of framework has been adopted by a lot of international, large investment houses for more than a decade... Sometimes, when you're in a commercial setting, you cannot tell your investor exactly what you're doing but they need some kind of assurance that you're doing the right thing." Starting this year, GIC has also simplified its policy portfolio from 13 to six asset classes, including public equities, private equity, real estate, bonds and cash. According to the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute, Norway's Government Pension Fund Global -- which is almost entirely invested in publicly traded securities -- is the world's largest sovereign fund. GIC is ranked eighth in terms of assets. Its assets are estimated by the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute to be worth US$247.5 billion. GIC said it invests over US$100 billion in assets in over 40 countries.

Whats New - Source: Singapore, a Rising Home for Quiet Money, Comes Under Pressure. By NEIL GOUGH. Singapore is forecast to become the largest cross-border financial center in the world by 2028 as it courts the superrich. SINGAPORELast year, American law enforcement officials pressed the Swiss bank UBS about Henry Hsiaw, a Taiwan-born American whom they accused of failing to file tax returns. The world has changed since the days when Swiss banks stood as the peak of privacy for the rich. Already, UBS had paid $780 million in fines and disclosed details of thousands of Swiss bank accounts held by Americans — including the records of one account controlled by Mr. Hsiaw. Still, UBS balked at handing over information about Mr. Hsiaw’s account with the bank in Singapore. That information, it said, was protected under the Asian city-state’s bank secrecy laws. That courthouse dispute illustrates the growing pressures on Singapore, an increasingly popular destination for money that wants to stay under the radar. Tight bank secrecy laws have helped draw $1.1 trillion in foreign funds to the city, according to an estimate from Boston Consulting Group, a consulting firm. Singapore is now growing faster than Switzerland and is set to become the largest cross-border financial center in the world by 2028, the firm forecasts. But in the face of growing international efforts to crack down on tax cheats, and complaints from abroad about its measures to stop illicit money, Singapore has made moves to show it takes the criticism seriously. It has jailed local and foreign bankers and closed down branches of two Swiss banks related to more than $3 billion that was said to have been siphoned from 1Malaysia Development Berhad, a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund, some of which moved through the city’s banks. Ravi Menon, chief of the city state’s top financial regulator, has said that 1MDB showed Singapore can do better. “There is no doubt that the recent findings have made a dent in our reputation as a clean and trusted financial center,” Mr. Menon said in a speech in July. The authority, he added, was “disappointed with the lapses” in financial controls. The Straits Times, a Singaporean newspaper, cautioned the city’s banks over 1MDB in an editorial last year. “Business is part of Singapore’s DNA,” it said, “but not the business of facilitating dubious deals.” American officials are trying to recoup more than $1 billion that they say was taken from 1MDB, a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund, and spent by family and friends of the country’s prime minister, Najib Razak. According to a United States lawsuit filed in July, hundreds of millions of dollars of the absconded funds were moved through bank accounts in Singapore and elsewhere. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/12/business/singapore-bank-secrecy-1mdb.html Be sure to visit us at Twitter http://twitter@monty0131.com Feel support us by visiting our website for additional information: link: http://stayingfittoday.com whatsnewmonty

So far, it has released the Cognac Watch (a watch with a drop of the oldest cognac in the world – Gautier 1762) and the Rum Watch (a watch with a drop of the oldest rum in the world – Harewood 1780). Wealth Solutions has decided to continue the production of this extraordinary line and create the Whisky Watch. The Company has invited the cooperation of Louis Moinet, inventor of the chronograph in 1816, which is well known for the creation of high-end timepieces, often featuring exotic materials and an innovative technology, underpinned by the philosophy of limited-edition mechanical art.

The Watch has a 3-level dial with applied open-work hour-markers, seconds at 9 o’clock and an exclusive whisky capsule at 3 o’clock. Whisky placed inside the capsule is Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862 – the world’s oldest whisky. This genuine unique spirit was used in this project by the courtesy of Sukhinder Singh, a famous British collector of rare alcoholic beverages and owner of The Whisky Exchange. The bottle of Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862 was opened specially for this purpose on 14th March in Warsaw, Poland. The bottle-opening ceremony was attended by: Charles MacLean, a whisky expert, writer and Master of the Quaich, Edward Bates, a spirits expert and Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac educator. The world premiere of the Whisky Watch took place in Singapore thanks to the cooperation with B28 Whisky Fund, a qualified merchant of rare whiskies and other spirits, based in Singapore. The partner of the event was also The Singapore Yacht Show 2017, which provides a first-class platform for regional guests to meet yachting professionals, boat owners and supercar aficionados. The premiere was hosted by Ocean Emerald – a modern and highly distinctive 41-m-long charter yacht offering every indulgence over four decks, with interior designed by the famed Norman Foster. Only 50 watches (10 in gold cases and 40 in steel cases) are available for sale.

Latest research from Timetric finds that Singapore is the fastest growing wealth centre in the Asia Pacific region and that Singapore will overtake Switzerland as the largest global offshore private banking market by 2020. The firm writes: "With Assets under Management (AuM) of US$550 billion at the end of 2011, new research reveals that Singapore is the fastest growing wealth centre in the world, and will be the largest offshore private banking market by 2020. This reflects the significant disparity in the performance of the HNWI sectors in the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the world, and suggests a bright future for HNWIs in the region." The research covered the high net worth individual (HNWI) populations in 13 Asia Pacific countries, focusing on HNWI performance between 2007 (the peak before the global financial crisis) and the end of 2011. The firm claims that this enables them to determine how well each country's HNWIs have performed through the crisis. Singapore has seen its AUM rise from US$50 billion in 2000 to US$550 billion in 2011. The firm says: "Singapore will benefit from the movement of funds away from Switzerland, Luxemburg and the Caribbean over the next seven years, and by 2020 will be the largest global offshore banking market by AuM."
