Sovereign Wealth Funds investing in smaller investments more often

Reading Time: 1 minute

A new report suggests that sovereign wealth funds are increasingly investing in smaller projects in developing nations, versus larger ones in North America and Europe. While the amount of sovereign funds dropped 23% in 2010, the actual amount of investments almost doubled, suggesting countries are making smaller, more frequent investments in developing countries like Brazil, Russian, India and China, and in emerging markets with rapid growth potential.

The Italian report showed that investments were rising in Asia, the Middle East, and even Latin America.  Southeast Asia in particular has seen a rapid influx of foreign investments from sovereign wealth funds, the largest of which is Norway’s $560 billion Government Pension Fund.  The Abu Dhabi, Kuwaiti, and Qatari Investment Authorities are also amongst the largest in the world.
