This year we attempted to focus our rankings a bit more on individuals who had experience in private markets, specifically real estate and infrastructure. Why? According to SWFI research, real estate and infrastructure as asset classes have steadily grown over the past decade at the expense of fixed income and public equity allocations. Having knowledge in real estate is a serious undertaking that has grown in prominence in institutional portfolios.

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