Closing the GAPP

By Ashby Monk

By all accounts, the IWG meetings in Santiago were a success. The IMF appears to have brokered an agreement on a series of Generally Accepted Principles and Practices for SWFs. Apparently, SWFs, such the CIC, who were previously sceptical have had a change of heart.

As I suggested in my post on Tuesday morning, this will be a positive development for the CIC. As with many new SWFs, the CIC still has some institutional hurdles to jump.  Improving governance practices cannot help but have positive impacts on these institutions’ performance.
