BP’s Hayward in line for Temasek role

TONY Hayward, the former chief executive of BP who stepped down at the beginning of this month, is believed to have been approached to take a role at Temasek Holdings, the Singaporean state investment fund.

Hayward has been holding talks with Temasek about a possible appointment to its international advisory panel.
Last month Hayward spoke at a conference in Singapore organised by Temasek and discussions about a role have apparently taken place since then.

People close to Hayward said the talks were at a “delicate” stage, and that they might not lead to an appointment. A friend of Hayward’s told Sky News the role was just one of several that he was considering.
