GIC’s ‘ODE to technology’ framework describes our investing and organisational responses to the repercussions of disruptive technology. O-D-E stands for Offence, Defence, and Enterprise Excellence.
Given the uncertain and rapid nature of technological disruption, we remain cautious and selective. We manage investment risk by diversifying, maintaining a robust investment process, adhering to strict pricing discipline, understanding the risk-reward calculus, and sizing the investment.
At GIC, we leverage technology to harness data, deepen insights, and sharpen our competitive edge in investing. Being agile when faced with emergent scenarios and deal opportunities remains key to achieving our purpose. To do so, we gather professionals across disciplines, including quantitative strategists, data scientists, and technologists, to provide GIC with an enduring proprietary edge through investment insights, as well as increased efficiency and productivity in our investment processes.
Enables superior investment performance through fast, reliable, and secure solutions with a ‘customer first’ approach.
For example, TG ensures GIC stays ahead of technology trends by investing in its people, software, engineering practices, tooling, and technology stack. Continuous experimentation with new technology is coupled with an agile solution delivery approach.
