IFSWF’s Upcoming Meeting

Ashby Monk

If you’ve ever thought about getting away to Baku, Azerbaijan, you might want to think about doing it next week. The inaugural meeting of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds is taking place there on October 8 and 9. The meeting, which is being hosted by SOFAZ, should be worthwhile, as reports indicate that there will be a large  representation of SWFs there.

It’ll be very interesting to read the final communique; as this is the first meeting since April (in Kuwait), and much has happened since then. In particular, I’m keen to see how SWFs assess the effect the Santiago Principles have had on their global acceptance.  I’ll also be interested to see if any consideration will be given to formalizing some GAPP reporting (as NZ has considered).

Anyway, there is lots to talk about. Watch this space on Monday the 12th.
