I'm not too concerned. It's just one year of negative return. I'm sure they have seen worse. It's part and parcel of the market volatility.

You can see what companies they invest in on their website.

However, above is not an exhaustive list. Because they do invest in unicorns. Below are a few I found:

Indonesia unicorn Tokopedia secures $500m from Temasek

  • American food delivery service: DoorDash

  • Indian ride-hailing service: Ola

  • China business of co-working space provider: WeWork

  • Indonesia e-commerce company: Tokopedia

What do you mean by investors?

Individual investors will have no relation to Temasek’s performance.

Temasek has to prop up Singapore’s economy.
It better be able to withstand anything.
