FACTBOX-Temasek’s management and portfolio

SINGAPORE, July 8 (BestGrowthStock) – Singapore state investor
Temasek [TEM.UL] saw its portfolio climb 43 percent to S$186
billion ($134 billion) in the 12 months to March 31, helped by
a rally in global stock markets.

Temasek, the world’s eighth-largest sovereign wealth fund
according to UK research firm Preqin, said its net profit for
the financial year fell to S$4.6 billion from S$6.2 billion,
however, due to reduced contributions from portfolio firms.

Temasek is the smaller of Singapore’s two sovereign wealth
funds, after the Government of Singapore Investment Corp (GIC)
[GIC.UL], which manages between $200 billion and $300 billion.
