As governments and investors put money into green infrastructure, retail investors, too, can contribute towards a net zero world, says Ho Ching, CEO and executive director of Temasek Holdings.

Speaking at the closing address of Temasek’s three-day Ecosperity Week 2021, Ho urged governments and businesses to open new opportunities for retail investors to invest for their own retirement or for their children. “The nexus between investors, businesses and society is people. We have a collective and shared responsibility between us, between investors and businesses, [between] governments and workers, to foster lifelong learning and to prepare ahead for retirement.”

Ho raised the example of how Capitaland pioneered the development of REITs nearly two decades ago. “Their first REIT was a portfolio of high-performing shopping malls. Retail investors can easily visit these malls to see for themselves if the malls are doing well.”
