Weekend Reading

Ashby Monk

Priti S. Rajagopalan and Sunil Rongala of Deloitte Research wrote a paper entitled, “Insurance Firms: The Missing Link in the Sovereign Wealth Fund Acquisition Spree.” It’s pretty interesting.

The authors note, “As Middle Eastern and Asian governments seek to close the gap between the current state of their financial sectors and the sophistication of world-class financial sectors by gaining access to valuable resources and skills, it is likely that SWFs will seek to invest in insurance firms in the near future.”

An interesting prediction; we’ll see what happens. Enjoy your weekend.
