Abstract: This paper examines the control mechanisms of Singapore?s Temasek Holdings and the performance of the firms controlled by Temasek. The data were hand-collected from a wide range of data sources and the sample period consists of five years. Ordinary Least Squares regression analysis is applied with Huber-White standard errors. This study finds that Temasek Holdings adopts a series of control mechanism, and these mechanisms destroy valuation. This paper also finds that Temasek Holdings? listed block investments in non-Singapore regions have consistently underperformed those based in Singapore during 2004-08.? This study is the first to provide detailed analysis on the control mechanisms employed by Temasek Holdings, and the effect of these mechanisms on performance.
