SWF Blog Roundup #3

By Bree Bang-Jensen

A summary of some recent blogosphere offerings on sovereign wealth funds:

SWFs Are a Natural Result of Free Trade: Felix Salmon, “SWFs vs Free Trade,” in Market Movers at Portfolio.com.

There’s no irony in US banks being recapitalized by the entities which are running a trade surplus with the US.

SWFs Underperform: Paul Kedrosky, “Sovereign Wealth Funds=> Stocks Weaken Faster,” at Infectious Greed.

There’s further evidence today why SWFs aren’t exactly seen as smart money.

Stabilization Funds, SWFs’ Poorer Cousin: “Stabilisation Funds,” from the Financial Times.

With sovereign wealth funds saving the western world, it is easy to forget about their poorer relatives. But stabilisation funds, designed to achieve medium-term macroeconomic stability rather than higher returns from excess forex reserves, are shimmying back into the limelight in some emerging markets
