When Lehman fall, it affected a lot of other banks, all kanna dragged down.

Check out AIG. rescued by Govt. But shareholders still have to take a hit

rescue so what? Your $1300 investment become $52.1

answer people is one...Temasek will lose so much $$ that answering itself is just not enough. To prevent it frm even happening and being the major shareholder..Temasek will likely know news that DBS is not doing well..and will save it even b4 it surface..

disclaimer...all is my own personal opinion
haha..

SINGAPORE: DBS Group Holdings posted a 4 per cent rise in fourth-quarter net profit and notched record full-year earnings.

Net profit for the October-December period came to S$838 million, below an average forecast of S$931 million from six analysts polled by Reuters.

That compares with a net profit before exceptional items of S$802 million in the same period a year earlier. In the previous year, the sale of a stake in a Philippine bank boosted overall net profit to S$973 million.

Bad debt provisions rose 40 per cent to S$211 million, while trading income dropped 44 per cent with the bank blaming less favourable trading conditions.

DBS' full-year net profit rose 10 per cent to hit a record S$4.05 billion, the bank said.
