Politicians Mulling Temasek-Style Hong Kong SWF

trees_sovereign_wealthThere is talk among politicians that Hong Kong is thinking of creating a sovereign wealth fund that is a strategic sovereign wealth fund similar to Singapore’s Temasek Holdings. The fund could assist in bringing stability to the Hong Kong market and help with the government’s long-term investment plans.

Sovereign funding could stem from government budget surpluses, though some money could come from the HKMA’s exchange fund. In 2007, the idea gained some traction but was shot down since the exchange fund already served the purpose. At the moment, there is a very low probability of this even happening.
