Investment Themes

Transforming Economies, Growing Middle Income Populations, Deepening Comparative Advantages, Emerging Champions

Temasek’s decisions as a professionally managed investment house are guided by business tenets and commercial discipline.

As the owner of our portfolio, we have the flexibility to take concentrated positions with a long or short time horizon, and invest, divest or remain liquid when it makes sense.

Our investment philosophy has remained largely unchanged over the last 15 years. We are committed to our roles as an investor and owner of our portfolio, seeking to deliver sustainable returns over the long term.

Temasek’s investment strategy continues to be guided by these four investment themes, and the long term trends they represent:

  • Transforming Economies
    - Tapping the potential of transforming economies like China, India, South East Asia and Latin America, through investments in sectors such as financial services, infrastructure and logistics.
  • Growing Middle Income Populations
    - Leveraging growing consumer demands through investments in sectors such as telecommunications, media and technology, and consumer and real estate.
  • Deepening Comparative Advantages 
    - Seeking out economies, businesses and companies with distinctive intellectual property and other competitive advantages.
  • Emerging Champions
    - Investing in companies with a strong home base, as well as companies at inflection points, with the potential to be regional or global champions.
