Rising Oil Prices Give Life to Bahrain’s Future Generations Reserve Fund

Posted on 04/20/2022

Gulf nations are benefitting from the steady rise in the price of oil. Even Bahrain started to resume payments into its Future Generations Reserve Fund.

Basic Contribution Formula to SWF
US$ 1 dollar = sold oil price over US$ 40
US$ 2 dollar = sold oil price over US$ 80
US$ 3 dollar = sold oil price over US$ 120

The Bahrain government ceased payments into its reserve fund in 2020. When the COVID pandemic and lockdowns hit, the Future Generations Reserve Fund drew down US$ 450 million, almost half its assets.

Bahrain was one of the most indebted oil producers in the Gulf region.
