VIEW the FULL LIST

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, endowments, central banks and other retirement funds. The size of managed assets is not the only criterion for ranking inclusion. One of the major factor that warrants inclusion on the list is the contribution to important trends in the asset owner industry.

This ranking will appear in our October issue of the Sovereign Wealth Quarterly.
