I'd jump at the chance to join GIC - from my experience of them as a client, they attract the best talent in the local market outside of, perhaps, the hedge fund community.USExpatt wrote:Hi there,
I'm currently an American working as a 1st year (going into 2nd yr) analyst at an investment bank in NYC. I just received an offer to join GIC's Professionals Programme as part of a transition to Singapore to be closer with family in other parts of Asia.
What's GIC's reputation, career advancement for non scholars, etc like? How does it compare to banking positions? It's quite a big paycut so I want to make sure I'm not making the wrong decision. Thanks.
Having GIC referenced on your CV gives you kudos and and an interview ticket to most other financial institutions in Singapore, if not more broadly in Asia.
