Press Inquiry:


SEATTLE, WA. – 30 September 2015 – The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute (SWFI) has just released its third annual Public Investor 100. The list includes the most significant and impactful public investor executives of 2015. The top 10 ranking assembles the most influential people at some of the largest funds and central banks around the globe.

    1. Janet Yellen – Chair, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
    2. Fahad Abdullah Al-Mubarak – Governor, Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency
    3. Karsten Kallevig – Chief Investment Officer Real Estate, Norges Bank Investment Management
    4. Mats Andersson – Chief Executive Officer, Fjärde AP-fonden

    9. Daniel Garant – Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, PSP Investments
    10. Scott Malpass – Chief Investment Officer, University of Notre Dame


These men and women command billions of assets, impacting the lives of stakeholders and constituents globally. The people on the list were chosen by SWFI staff – not influenced by asset managers, governments or consultants. They come from medium to large-sized asset owners – sovereign wealth funds, public pensions, superannuation funds, endowments, central banks and other retirement funds. The size of managed assets is not the only criterion for ranking inclusion. One of the major factor that warrants inclusion on the list is the contribution to important trends in the asset owner industry.

This ranking will appear in our October issue of the Sovereign Wealth Quarterly.
