A Sense of Community

Ashby Monk

The International Working Group of Sovereign Wealth Funds continues to instil a sense of community among SWFs. Twelve participating funds will be getting together in Kuwait in early April to discuss investment mandates and the Santiago Principles.  According to The Edge:

“The meeting will be attended by funds from Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, China, Singapore, Australia, Norway, Chile, Azerbaijan, Russia, South Korea and the US.”

More than just an opportunity to commiserate with one another over huge financial losses, this will be a chance to further refine the Santiago Principles and, generally, inform one another on recent experiences. The unique nature of the financial crisis makes it a useful ‘stress test’ that could inform future SWF operations.
