Sovereign Wealth Fund delegates to discuss their long-term capital management philosophy, asset allocation approach and outlook for global markets. ‎Since the early 2000s, the asset pool of Sovereign Wealth Funds has grown exponentially at around 20% CAGR as the number of funds established expanded to keep up with the commodities-led balance of payment surpluses. In recent months of extended commodity slump, some of these Sovereign Wealth Funds have held steady whereas others have tapped into accumulated capital as mandated by their investment objectives. Even though usually clubbed together, not all SWFs are alike and many differ profoundly in investment mandates and source of funds. However, all Sovereign Wealth Funds, whether structured as stabilization funds, savings & development funds or reserve investments, have an important role in macroeconomic management and global financial stability. In this context, the long term investment horizon combined with a set-up that’s typically ever-green and not subject to liability concerns, has led these funds to have unique asset allocation profiles.
