SWFI’s editorial team compiled the list and determined rankings without any influence from asset managers, governments or consultants. Nominees hail from medium to large-sized institutions – 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 the involvement of these individuals in important developments and trends in the asset owner space.
With regard to the ranking, each organization is limited to one person.
“This is a meaningful list,” said Michael Maduell, CEO of SWFI. “The men and women of the Public Investor 100, collectively responsible for trillions of dollars in public assets, are some of the most powerful and influential people in the world, and their actions and innovations resonate throughout the lives of their stakeholders and constituents globally.”
The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute is a global organization designed to study sovereign wealth funds, public pensions, central banks and other long-term public investors in the areas of investing, asset allocation, risk, governance, economics, policy, trade and other relevant topics.

The youngest woman ever to serve in U.S. Congress – starting at the age of 29 – already has an opponent in her sights. Freshman U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, often dubbed AOC on Twitter, was appointed to the House Financial Services Committee, where the democratic socialist will oversee Wall Street. This committee oversees the banks and financial institutions of the United States. With Republicans controlling the U.S. Senate and the White House, and the Democrats controlling the House, one can expect less game-changing bills being turned into laws in the banking sector.
While bartending and waiting tables at the Flats Fix taco bar in Union Square, Ocasio-Cortez upset the more centrist Representative Joe Crowley, Chairman of the House Democratic caucus. Encouraged by her success, other far left democrats are planning to challenge moderate democrats in the 2020 primaries. Ocasio-Cortez is also expected to further strengthen the influence of Chairwoman Maxine Waters of the House Financial Services Committee.
