Public Release – 2Q 2014 Linaburg-Maduell Transparency Index Ratings

The second quarter results for 2014 on sovereign wealth fund transparency have now been released to the public. The Linaburg-Maduell Transparency Index was developed at the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute by Carl Linaburg and Michael Maduell. Some new sovereign funds have been added to the sovereign wealth fund transparency grading.

The Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) has been upgraded to a 9 from a score of 4. The Kazakhstan National Fund was downgraded to a 2 from the first quarter of 2014.

The Linaburg-Maduell transparency index is a method of rating transparency in respect to sovereign wealth funds. Pertaining to government-owned investment vehicles, where there have been concerns of unethical agendas, calls have been made to the larger “opaque” or non-transparent funds to show their intentions.
