Helping You Understand the Growing Importance of SWFs – Bringing Fresh Capital to the Markets

The nation-states of the world are funneling money into investment vehicles and targeting key investments in the global capital markets. Corporate equities.  Sovereign and private debt offerings (fixed-income).  Private equity.  Hedge funds. Indexes. Derivatives. Even buying entire companies, units of companies (spin offs) and product lines. Commodities.  Real estate.  All are part of the mix of interest to Sovereign Wealth Funds.   Think of these investment vehicles as sovereign or state owned entities, investment pools, that are organized in various ways to invest the surplus funds (those not needed internally) externally for the benefit of the home nation-state.  More than half of the Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) are resource-based – with primarily oil and gas revenues fueling the investment pool.  

The sample presented is one of the best-known funds, that of Abu Dhabi, part of the United Arab Emirates of the Gulf region.  The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) had as much as USD$875 billion in assets managed in mid-year 2008.  The profiles in the SWF Category include:  Fund overview, structure, investment basics, investment strategies, and other features. Also:  Streaming News about the fund (gathered globally, posted 3X daily); and many useful links about the home country – including authoritative US government information; major media in the home country with links; country risk ratings…and more.

Estimates range as high as USD$3.2 billion in assets are managed by the leading SWFs (State Street and Prequin)  – even after the recent market debacle.  Some are cash-rich – and returning to active investment in industrial and developing countries.  SustainabilityHQTM gives you the “heads-up” you need on SWFs before the headlines break the news to your peers.
