SINGAPORE - Singapore state investor Temasek Holdings said Chief Executive Ho Ching will return in her role after her three-month sabbatical ends later this month.

Neil McGregor, a senior managing director at Temasek, said the board looks at succession policies each year, but didn't give any specific details on Ms Ho's long-term plans.

Ms Ho is the wife of current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

She took leave after the death in late March of her father-in-law, Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's first prime minister.

Temasek is a major global investor with stakes in Standard Chartered, Chinese banks and Singapore's biggest companies.
