Sovereign Wealth Funds Are Approaching 6 Trillion in Assets

Sovereign wealth funds are approaching US$ 6 trillion in assets. Increases in stock markets globally have helped lift the value of sovereign wealth assets.

“Rising globally, sovereign wealth funds are springing up from Africa to certain states in the U.S.,” commented Michael Maduell, President of the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute.

Asia and the Middle East hold the bulk of sovereign wealth fund assets. Those regions have time and flow on their side.

In addition, the 41:59 ratio of other-funded sovereign wealth funds versus sovereign wealth funds from oil and gas sources has remained in a close range for nearly six years. This reflects the importance of fossil fuel extraction being a key driver of sovereign wealth asset growth. Commodity prices remain a necessary input for sovereign asset accumulation.
