  • 1. Sovereign Wealth Funds, Rankings and Asset Allocations Globally
  • 2. A Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF) is a state-owned investment fund composed of financial assets such as stocks, bonds, real estate, or other financial instruments funded by foreign exchange assets. These assets can include: balance of payments surpluses, official foreign currency operations, the proceeds of privatizations, fiscal surpluses, and/or receipts resulting from commodity exports
  • 3. Sovereign Wealth Funds can be structured as a fund, pool, or corporation. The definition of sovereign wealth fund exclude, among other things, foreign currency reserve assets held by monetary authorities for the traditional balance of payments or monetary policy purposes, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in the traditional sense, government-employee pension funds, or assets managed for the benefit of individuals.
  • 4. Some funds also invest indirectly in domestic state-owned enterprises. In addition, they tend to prefer returns over liquidity, thus they have a higher risk tolerance than traditional foreign exchange reserves. Funds may have their origin in:  Commodities - Created through commodity exports, either taxed or owned by the government.
  • 5.  Non Commodities - Usually created through transfers of assets from official foreign exchange reserves. Read More: Sovereign Wealth Funds their Rankings and their Asset Allocations Globally Thank you Follow Ziad K Abdelnour @
