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.

Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Opalesque's first CAMPUS series features Melvyn Teo, Associate Professor of Finance at Singapore Management University. Teo is also Director of the BNP Paribas Hedge Fund Centre at the Singapore Management University. In this Opalesque CAMPUS, Teo shares his findings that hedge funds charging lower than average performance fees tend to have a higher liquidity risk, which will translate into problems for investors, when they try to pull money out of the fund. One example of such a problem is the "return impact" of redemptions, when the return of the fund tends to fall in the next month. Teo also gives specific recommendations what investors can do to better understand the liquidity risk a fund may carry.
