  • 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...

What is SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND? What does SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND mean? SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND meaning - SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND definition - SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A sovereign wealth fund (SWF) is a state-owned investment fund investing in real and financial assets such as stocks, bonds, real estate, precious metals, or in alternative investments such as private equity fund or hedge funds. Sovereign wealth funds invest globally. Most SWFs are funded by revenues from commodity exports or from foreign-exchange reserves held by the central bank. By historic convention, the United States' Social Security Trust Fund, with $2.8 trillion of assets in 2014, is not considered a sovereign wealth fund. Some sovereign wealth funds may be held by a central bank, which accumulates the funds in the course of its management of a nation's banking system; this type of fund is usually of major economic and fiscal importance. Other sovereign wealth funds are simply the state savings that are invested by various entities for the purposes of investment return, and that may not have a significant role in fiscal management. The accumulated funds may have their origin in, or may represent, foreign currency deposits, gold, special drawing rights (SDRs) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) reserve positions held by central banks and monetary authorities, along with other national assets such as pension investments, oil funds, or other industrial and financial holdings. These are assets of the sovereign nations that are typically held in domestic and different reserve currencies (such as the dollar, euro, pound, and yen). Such investment management entities may be set up as official investment companies, state pension funds, or sovereign oil funds, among others. There have been attempts to distinguish funds held by sovereign entities from foreign-exchange reserves held by central banks. Sovereign wealth funds can be characterized as maximizing long-term return, with foreign exchange reserves serving short-term "currency stabilization", and liquidity management. Many central banks in recent years possess reserves massively in excess of needs for liquidity or foreign exchange management. Moreover, it is widely believed most have diversified hugely into assets other than short-term, highly liquid monetary ones, though almost no data is publicly available to back up this assertion. Some central banks have even begun buying equities, or derivatives of differing ilk (even if fairly safe ones, like overnight interest rate swaps).

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.
