As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

Temasek reports 3.7 per cent rise in net value of investment portfolio

SINGAPORE: Temasek Holdings on Tuesday (July 8) reported a 3.7 per cent increase in the net value of its investment portfolio - from S$215 billion in 2013 to S$223 billion in the last fiscal year.
In its annual Temasek Review report released on Tuesday, the investment company said Group net profit for the year ended March 31, 2014, rose 2.8 per cent to S$10.9 billion, from S$10.6 billion in the same period last year.

Total shareholder return (TSR), which is Temasek's key measure of performance, was 1.5 per cent for the past year, down from 8.6 per cent in the previous 12 months. It attributed this mainly to weakness in key Asian markets.

Temasek's  five-year TSR was 11 per cent and 

its 10-year TSR was 9 per cent, which the firm said reflects the steady growth in its portfolio. 

Longer term 20-year TSR was 6 per cent, and 

14 per cent for 30 years, it added. 




In the last fiscal year, Temasek invested a total of S$24 billion and divested nearly S$10 billion, for a total net investment of $14 billion.

Temasek Chairman Lim Boon Heng said in the statement that "this year has been one of our most active years for new investments - the most active since the Global Financial Crisis". The new investments are driven by the continued recovery in the global economy as well as lower asset prices in Asia, which offered attractive investment opportunities.

Temasek said the top three sectors for investments during the year were in financial services, life sciences and energy. Among its investments in financial services was the acquisition of a 1.1 per cent stake in United Kingdom-based Lloyds Banking Group.

In life sciences, Temasek invested almost US$1 billion in Gilead Sciences - a firm that develops treatments for cancer, HIV and infectious diseases. It also invested about S$2 billion in Pavilion Energy, which focuses on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in the energy space.

Temasek's key divestments over the year included Singapore's Tiger Airways and part of its stake in India's Bharti Telecom.

It ended the year with an underlying portfolio exposure of 31 per cent in Singapore, 25 per cent in China and 10 per cent in Australia. However, its exposure in North America and Europe grew to over 14 per cent from 12 per cent in the previous year.

Looking ahead, Mr Lim said that there will be both challenges and opportunities with the rapidly changing world.

"Even as we mark our 40th anniversary, we embrace the future with all that it brings. At 40, our journey has just begun," he added.
