GIC Pte and Temasek Holdings Pte, Singapore’s state-owned investment firms, are set to lead global sovereign investors in acquisitions for a second year after emerging as the most active in 2013.
The US$15.7 billion (RM50.8 billion) spent by both companies accounted for about a third of direct investments by state investors globally last year, according to data compiled by the London-based Institutional Investor’s Sovereign Wealth Centre. Temasek and one of its units announced two purchases in March that amounted to US$8.9 billion, or 57 per cent what the two companies invested last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
