  • GIC's performance on par with Norway's sovereign wealth fund - 02Aug2013

    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 il...

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.

The Citi Private Bank hedge fund platform business manages roughly $4bn globally in single hedge fund investments and custom hedge fund portfolios for ultra high net worth clients. Frank and his team believe in hedge funds as a key piece of the puzzle in a "holistic" multi-asset class portfolio. In this Opalesque TV interview, Frank speaks about a paradigm shift within hedge fund investing where hedge funds' performance has shifted from an absolute return vehicle to a relative return vehicle, but remains relevant for investors when put into customized and balanced portfolios, along with other asset classes and investment styles. Despite a lack of absolute performance in the last few years, hedge funds still deserve a place in wealthy investors' portfolios, particularly given their ability to protect capital and preserve wealth, which are among the highest priorities for ultra high net worth investors. While Frank feels institutions have recognized this shift in paradigm, he observes that ultra high net worth clients have remained highly skeptical of hedge fund investing since 2008. But this is a trend Frank believes will change as more investors come to recognize the new relative return paradigm.

This is an extract of WSJ Peter Stein report entitled Lessons From Singapore on Bank Bonuses. He wrote, when it comes to pay, Wall Street could learn a thing or two from Singapore. Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd. could give them a master class on the subject. Temasek isn't a bank. It is a state-owned investment firm with a portfolio valued at well over US$100 billion that holds stakes in some of Singapore's biggest companies. It also invests in companies outside Singapore and in other assets, too, including hedge funds, private-equity funds and real estate. For years, Temasek has paid its employees with a sensible plan that includes cash bonus payments and deferred incentives. A key part (but not the only part) of the plan links bonus payments to something called "wealth added," a measure of the company's return on its investments in a given year that factors in its risk-adjusted cost of capital. Basically, calculating wealth added, or WA, tells you whether the company's assets produced more value than the minimum you would expect given their level of risk. At Temasek, everyone has a WA bonus bank. When WA goes up, more money goes into the bank, which then funds deferred bonuses that take at least three years, and as long as 12, to vest. Here is the important part: When Temasek loses money, you get what it somewhat confusingly calls "negative wealth added," and money comes out of the bonus bank. So a lousy year at the company cuts into an employee's ability to enjoy previously awarded bonuses. This also is known as a clawback. Last September, Temasek announced it had a lousy year. In the year ended March 31, 2009, the value of its investment portfolio fell 30%, and its profit fell 67%. Its wealth added was a negative 68.1 billion Singapore dollars, or about US$48.5 billion, meaning everybody's WA bonus bank took a big hit. Soon, banks around the world may get to the point where this is the standard pay plan. Temasek can say it got there first. For the full story, please visit www.asia.wsj.com

Christopher Balding, Professor at the Peking University HSBC Business School, presented at ESADE Madrid his latest book, Sovereign Wealth Funds: the New Intersection of Money and Politics, in which the author examines the challenges that confront sovereign wealth funds and the states that found them. During the lecture, which is part of the series of events organised by ESADEgeo, Balding spoke about the different case studies that his book compiles, as well as its analysis of their historical, economic and financial framework. With this work Balding seeks to develop a deeper knowledge about sovereign investment funds, beginning with their history: the evolution from being small stabilisation funds to becoming the principal institutional investors.
