SINGAPORE (July 10): Temasek Holdings is positioning itself to ride six powerful trends, even as it prepares for tougher global market conditions in the year ahead.

At its annual review on Tuesday, Temasek noted that technological advances, demographic shifts and changing consumption patterns are disrupting traditional business models and creating new opportunities. It specifically identified six themes that are now guiding its investments: Longer Lifespans, Rising Affluence, Sustainable Living, Smarter Systems, the Sharing Economy, and a More Connected World.

“For example, the opportunity created by longer lifespans have led to investments in biopharma companies like Denali and AC Immune,” said Alpin Mehta, Managing Director, Investment at Temasek. Denali Therapeutics and AC Immune are both NASDAQ-listed pharmaceutical companies focused on treating neurodegenerative diseases.
