Visualizing SWFs

Ashby Monk

Having done a degree in economic geography, I have a soft spot in my heart for maps. And this Flash map by Sven Behrendt and his team at the Carnegie Middle East Center is quite useful.

It plots the location and size of SWFs, while allowing you to roll your mouse over the funds to find out some basic information about each one of them.

It’s remarkable to see how large a handful of these funds are in comparison to the whole community of SWFs. ADIA, GPF-G and CIC dominate the landscape. Anyway, check it out.
