The fundraisers included Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC, Canada Pension plan investment board, Soft Bank vision fund 2 & Walmart. The e-commerce monster in Southeast Asia is Shopee that was founded in Singapore in 2015. Its holding company Sea Ltd. has the most value in Singapore by the market cap. According to the 2017 NYSE, its market value is over USD 150 billion which is three times of the next largest company DBS bank.
