SWFI to Officially Expand Coverage on Asset Managers

Published

on

One of the prime goals of SWFI is to maintain its impartial, respected position on being the source of data, research, discussion and knowledge on asset owners which we see as sovereign wealth funds, pensions, endowments, superannuation funds, central banks and other institutional funds. A while ago, we officially changed our brand name from Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute to SWFI to reflect our growing coverage universe. We cover over 210 public institutional investors, profiling them through various characteristics, briefings, data points and other dimensions. SWFI has created a massive, unrivaled database on public investor transactions and constructed a database for RFPs and opportunities called SWFI Compass, an invaluable tool for asset managers and owners.

More importantly, with a massive list of email readers and tremendous growth in our corporate/government subscriber base, including pensions and SWFs, we are also going to be covering the whole community. What I mean by that is asset managers. As asset owners start to become more independent and begin to invest more into internal resources, we will continue to provide our clients with the tools they need to be successful.

Asset Manager Profiles and Data Submission

The rollout of asset manager profiles will be thoughtful. We plan to provide data and intelligence for our clients on asset managers.

Current subscribers and members (asset managers) will be able to send SWFI up to 10 institutional grade products for us to track and provide coverage on. SWFI staff will send a list of the required fields and frequency.

Non-clients may send up to 5 institutional grade products. For us to process non-clients, there will be an annual administrative fee. It is up to SWFI research staff for an asset manager profile inclusion.

If you wish to learn more about what we are doing, please contact us support@swfinstitute.org.

Canadian Pension Giants Could Support Trans Mountain Pipeline Deal

Published

on

The British Columbian (B.C.) government and indigenous groups publicly oppose the Trans Mountain Pipeline project over a number of issues, which include environmental concerns (potential pipeline spills) and land protections. The threat of project derailment sent jitters to Houston-based Kinder Morgan, Inc., requiring the company to halt non-essential spending on Trans Mountain Pipeline L.P. Calgary-based Kinder Morgan Canada Limited, which owns the pipeline, is a listed company that is 70% owned by Kinder Morgan and 30% owned by stock market investors (float). Kinder Morgan Canada hired TD Securities to explore options regarding the future of the pipeline.
