10 thoughts on “How Rich is Singapore? Our reserves! (Part 2)

  1. To let you understand better, let’s say normal year Sg suppose to surplus $10b. Return of investment $20b. so every year sg has $30b richer.

    Now we spend $60B. So we are -30B. But we top up $20B from past reserves!

    so we are still $10B deficit this year.

    Reference you can find from Ministry of Finance website!

  2. Still got temasek & gic.

    Mas & temasek net assets are reported but they keep gic secret.

    They've also reported on the long term investment returns of all 3.

    Gic contains at least most of cpf & revenue surpluses. All of which have been invested & compounded over the last few decades.

    1. Agree and already took that into consideration. Those are the returns per year already mentioned in above charts and it is S$80B (only 50%) from year 2000 to 2015. Meaning the returns taking into consideration is S$160B. For GIC and Temasek to gets returns (in dividends or sale of assets) S$160B for 15 years is also quite substantial on average.

      Some of the returns were also used.

      In accounting terms, net assets are not reserve, but more how much you are worth or called equity. So it is different.

      So using this metric, only calculated reserve as S$200B. But if like what you said, there can be more (we do not know) from CPF also etc (which is used by GIC), hence S$400B, which is another S$200B can be upper ceiling as reflected in our MAS website. So it is logical.

      I agree that most of us think we Singapore is very rich. And frankly $200-400B is already very rich for our short history.

  3. it is the President's job to look after the national reserve. And the President needs to know how much reserve there are in the first place. Only one man tried to find out about our reserve so far. That's the late Mr Ong Teng Cheong

  4. Here you have told about Singapore and finding the richest person there but I must tell you one thing in Singapore hiring a maid from the best maid agency singapore is really very tough. Because if you are not well settled then you can not afford them easily. Only richest person can afford them but do you know there are some places like universal who can provide you the best and highly experienced maid just at a reasonable cost.

  8. Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with
