Summer Reading, Part 2

By Ashby Monk

August may be a slow news month, but new academic and industry reports continue to surface.

First off, State Street’s Vision Report has an issue dedicated to SWFs. The first two chapters are principally concerned with understanding and defining SWFs, which is something we have been interested in as well.  The final section details some of the impacts that SWFs are having on global financial markets. It is well worth reading.

Second, following on from our chat with Professor Gordon L. Clark about pension fund governance and how it might relate to the governance of SWFs, the OECD’s draft guidelines for pension fund governance may also be of interest. In the same vein, a paper by Fiona Stewart and Juan Yermo at the OECD details the challenges and potential solutions with respect to governing pension funds.
