Temasek must also have been taking excessive risks or its FY2016 group net profit wouldn’t have plunged almost 50% from FY2015. We are not even in a financial crisis so will what’s going to happen when one strikes?

Temasek’s net profit was $8 billion in FY2016 and $9 billion in FY2007. If its investments were yielding really good returns, why is its FY2016 net profit lower than FY2007?
