In the increasingly complex choreography of the world economy, sovereign wealth funds (SWF) play an ever more important role due to their capacity to channel large volumes of savings toward in- vestment and hence boost economic growth. This role is analyzed in depth in the study on sovereign funds, a joint project between ICEX-Invest in Spain and IE University, and which has become a leading instrument of analysis for the institutional investment industry worldwide.
Sovereign wealth funds
Sovereign wealth funds could sell nearly $404 billion of stocks in the course of this year if crude prices remain low, according to predictions by the Institute of Sovereign Wealth Funds. This would mean doubling the divestments made in 2015, which totalled $213.4 billion.
