Apart from the Oxford SWF Project Blog and our Twitter Feed, other useful SWF sources on the web are (in alphabetical order):

  • Financial Times’ In-Depth Sovereign Funds: The FT has frequent (and good) coverage of SWFs; the link to the left takes you to their SWF content.
  • Financial Times also has a remarkable stable of blogs that cover SWFs frequently, such Alphaville, BeyondBrics, and Money Supply.
  • Incisive Media’s CentralBanking.com: This website covers a variety of relevant topics, including SWFs.
  • Institutional Investor’s Sovereign Funds Central: A news and research compiler. It also has videos, information-sharing and lots of other stuff.
  • International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds: The Forum is a voluntary group of SWFs, which will meet once a year or so to exchange views on issues of common interest and facilitate an understanding of the Santiago Principles and SWF activities.
  • Law at the End of the Day: Larry Catá Backer frequently posts his latest SWF research here. The link to the left is only to those posts tagged “sovereign wealth funds.”
  • Monitor: This is a dedicated web page for this strategy consultancy’s research on SWFs.
  • OMFIF: The Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum is a sort of ‘discussion club’ for central banks and sovereign wealth funds. The group also publishes an interesting newsletter on their website.
  • Opalesque’s Sovereign Wealth Funds Briefing: This is a top-notch news gathering website.
  • Reuter’s Macroscope: This blog covers SWFs frequently (mostly thanks to Natsuko Waki’s reporting). Reuters is also generally on top of all things SWFs; here’s a canned search on their website.
  • RGE Monitor’s FX Reserves and Sovereign Wealth: I think you need a log-in for this. They have lots of their own content and do a pretty good job of flagging up any relevant papers, articles or blog posts on SWFs.
  • Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute: A website / business with detailed information on many SWFs.
  • Sovereign Wealth Fund Initiative: This is a research project on SWFs housed at Tufts University in The Fletcher School. There’s lots of good info here.
  • Taighde: This is a platform to exchange research and ideas on SOEs and SWFs. They also sell research reports on various topics.


  • RIP: SWF Radar. While this fantastic service is no longer with us, you can relive the amazing SWF moments in 2007-2008 in its permanent archive.
  • RIP: International Working Group of SWFs: Now referred to as the “International Forum”, this was the organization that developed the Santiago Principles. The website is now an archive.
  • RIP: Brad Setser Follow the Money: Another fantastic SWF resource that has come to an end. The link to the left directs you to Setser’s 97 SWF posts.
  • RIP: Sovereign Wealth Funds News: They’ve stopped updating, but the site still has some good information and resources.
  • RIP: Sovereign Wealth Fund Watch: This was a free news compiler; some links are still up.
