DEALS: Sovereign Wealth Funds Spent Less in 2015

Source: Sovereign Wealth Fund Transaction Database | Extracted January 9, 2016.

Sovereign wealth funds in 2015 spent slightly less on direct transactions compared to 2014, according to proprietary data from SWFI’s Sovereign Wealth Fund Transaction Database. The total direct transaction amount in 2015 by sovereign funds is US$ 114 billion compared to US$ 122 billion in 2014. However, when calculating all public investors, which includes large public pensions, direct transactions total US$ 211 billion in 2015 versus US$ 186 billion in 2014. Leading the charge for asset-rich pensions were Canadian institutional investors such as Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP) and Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ).

In true contrarian fashion, the amount in 2015 toward direct energy investments boosted to US$ 15.22 billion.
