An interactive E-Book App on Singapore’s economic history & the GIC story.
Safeguarding the Future – The Story of How Singapore Has Managed Its Reserves and The Founding of GIC tells the untold story of Singapore’s reserve management history, and re-creates the vision, creativity and drive that led to the founding of GIC – a game changer in how Singapore would manage its foreign reserves. Yet, unconventional as it was then, GIC has a pre-history – its roots anchored in ideals and values affirmed in the crucible of the financial challenges facing the nation in its formative years.
