Portfolio Performance

We are owners of our portfolio, working to deliver sustainable value over the long term to our stakeholders.

Value since Inception

In our earlier years, we grew with our portfolio companies as Singapore transformed.

We began in 1974 with a portfolio that reflected an industrialising Singapore. Some of these companies, and others added since, have grown into iconic Singapore brands such as Singapore Airlines and the Singapore Zoo. Companies like DBS, Singtel and Keppel have transformed into international businesses, alongside the country’s rapid development.

Since 2002, we have actively invested in the transformation of Asia and beyond.

We continue to seed and grow the next generation of companies, even as we invest into new emerging sectors such as cyber security and sustainable technologies.

As at 31 March 2017, our net portfolio value was S$275 billion.

What is Net Portfolio Value?

Total Shareholder Return

Total Shareholder Return (TSR) is a compounded and annualised measure, which includes dividends paid to our shareholder and excludes capital injections from our shareholder. Our TSR over short, medium, and long time periods are a snapshot of our performance.

As at 31 March 2017, our Singapore dollar one-year TSR was 13.37%. Our three-year TSR was 7.13% and our 10-year TSR was 4%.

Our 20-year TSR was 6%, versus the Singapore 20-year annualised core inflation of under 2%. Longer term 40-year TSR was 15%.

Our TSR is measured against our risk-adjusted cost of capital, which is derived using a capital asset pricing model. The risk-adjusted cost of capital is built bottom-up, and aggregated over all our investments.
