Book description

Sovereign investors have assumed an increasingly influential position in international financial markets. In times of unprecedented upheaval in Western financial markets, sovereign wealth funds and other official investors from emerging markets have emerged as potential stabilising forces.

New Perspectives on Sovereign Asset Management is a unique guide to the policy questions surrounding the emergence of sovereign investors. It presents the perspectives of seasoned policymakers and experienced official investors and covers the following four key areas:

  • The role of sovereign investors in 21st century financial markets
  • The regulatory approach to sovereign investment
  • The internal challenges of sovereign investors
  • The future of sovereign investing

This indispensable title is aimed primarily at senior policymakers in charge of high-level investment policy, relationships with stakeholders, risk management and legal aspects of sovereign wealth funds, public pension funds, central banks and ministries of finance.
