Sovereign Wealth Funds control over $7 trillion worth of assets and have become a significant feature of the global economic landscape. In this short revision video we identify countries with sovereign wealth funds and some of the investments they have been making.
A sovereign wealth fund (SWF) is a state-owned investment fund investing in real and financial assets such as stocks, bonds, real estate, precious metals, or in alternative investments such as private equity fund or hedge funds. Sovereign wealth funds invest globally. Most SWFs are funded by revenues from commodity exports or from foreign-exchange reserves held by the central bank. No fund is bigger than the than Norwegian “Pension Fund Global” worth $882 billion, more than double national GDP. It owns more than 2% of all listed shares in Europe and over 1% globally. visit: http://www.b2bwhiteboard.com/resources

Christopher Balding, Professor at the Peking University HSBC Business School, presented at ESADE Madrid his latest book, Sovereign Wealth Funds: the New Intersection of Money and Politics, in which the author examines the challenges that confront sovereign wealth funds and the states that found them. During the lecture, which is part of the series of events organised by ESADEgeo, Balding spoke about the different case studies that his book compiles, as well as its analysis of their historical, economic and financial framework.
