Sovereign Funds: 3 Portfolio Moves They Are Contemplating


Sovereign wealth funds like the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) and GIC Private Limited often take tactical bets while maintaining their long-term investment views. For example, GIC is an investor in Mumbai-based Eros International Plc, an Indian moviemaker – betting on India’s growing consumer class. ADIA has skipped away from U.K. core real estate to seek opportunities in Irish real estate. The wealth fund giant is looking to buy a massive Irish real estate loan portfolio valued at €1.7 billion called Project Jewel from Ireland’s National Asset Management Agency (NAMA). Some of the debt includes loans on the Dundrum Town Centre, a sprawling shopping center in Dublin. These institutional investors understand that risk is the price all investors must pay to achieve returns.
