Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute Releases the Public Investor 100

Posted on 08/07/2013

pi100_squareThe Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute has released a list of the 100 most significant and impactful public investor executives of 2013.

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, central banks, and other public investors. The size of managed assets is not the only criteria for ranking inclusion. Another significant factor is that some of these individuals have contributed or been part of important trends in the asset owner industry. Last, there are obvious names that could not have been left off the ranking.

Here it is – 2013 Rankings
