Default Now we know why CPF interest rates are so low

because the "stellar" returns of GIC and Temasek have
been used to pay u guys' obscene salaries.

This person need to be brought back to earth. He/she is speaking as if GIC (& this forum) belongs to him/her. Stating facts? More like bullshitting. Certainly needs a tight slap on the face.

For someone who wants to get into a SWF which is dominated by scholars, $15k salary is on the low side for someone at his age. I said it quite clearly this is postitive as at least budget becomes a non issue here.

It is also important to note that GIC is not your average GLC here, if he has no direct experience, there's got to be more to convince them to put him through. Citing a degree that was taken more than a decade ago just doesn't cut the mustard. Again just stating facts here.

also should I tell them how much I am currently getting?
VP can aim abt 23-25k, but 5 yrs exp maybe ask for 20k leave them to decide to give you avp or vp. AVP max is 25k and overlap with vp range of 20-35k.

If you have no relevant working experience, forget it. Even if you did, you'd probably need to be an A-lister. In any case you would be among a lot of government scholars so it would be a huge uphill push to stand out from among them.

Ok. Are there successful cases of fresh graduates from other disciplines joining temasek? What do they look out for in these non business school graduates?

Thanks

Default GIC thieves

So now I see how ordinary Singaporeans money is being used to pay the obscene salaries of GIC staff, when its investment losses are such that a monkey pushing BUY/SELL button at random make better gains. And you think yourself smart/A Lister/dean's list crap??

More like smart at legally cheating the ordinary folks who actually do REAL work to eke out a living. karma will turn around and pay those in kind for every single dollar of blood money 'earned'. AVP at 25k, my a**

I don't wish to reveal too much of hiring practices - you are best served looking at the GIC careers website to get a feel of the requirements.

You might be able to get a support services position, but if you think you'll be allowed to have a part in managing a (tiny) part of the hundred of billions of dollars of funds with no formal financial education OR relevant experience, think again.
