"The partnership with Temasek will allow us to further our reach so that we can partner our clients in designing their digital impact strategies," UST chief executive Sajan Pillai said in a statement.
"Temasek will invest USD 250 million for a minority stake," he said, but did not disclose how much equity the fund will pick up.
Pillai further said the investment marks a milestone for UST Global as it makes Temasek the first institutional investor in the company.
The city-based i-banker Avendus Capital was the advisor to UST Global.
