Summary

Prior to establishment of the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) in 2005, Qatar’s Ministry of Finance had a small in-house team to invest revenue from budget surpluses. The Qatar Investment Authority was founded by the government of Qatar to strengthen the country’s economy by diversifying into new asset classes, strategies and investments.

Qatar is one of the largest exporters of liquefied natural gas (LNG) thus giving them a commodity surplus of wealth. The Qatar Investment Authority is a sovereign wealth fund that invests domestically and internationally to curtail reliance on energy price volatility.
