“Ever since coining the term ‘sovereign wealth funds,’ I have watched with mixed feelings the debate unfolding around them. On the one hand, the growth in size and influence of these funds has been nothing short of spectacular, with tremendously beneficial stabilising effects for the global economy and financial markets. On the other hand, heightened public scrutiny and suspicion in many recipient countries, often inspired by nothing more than deep-seated prejudice and economic nationalism, have not been helpful. There have been precious few books written on the subject and none by financial industry practitioners – until now. Castelli and Scacciavillani have taken on the challenge and made an important contribution with this book.”—Andrew Rozanov, Head of Sovereign Advisory, Permal Group & originator of the term ‘Sovereign Wealth Funds’ “A seminal work filled with interesting analyses and pinpoint arguments. I believe this book will exhilarate fund managers and academics who want to get an insight into the Sovereign Wealth Funds dynamics. We are encountering the finest Sovereign Wealth Funds book of the decade.”—Young-Kwon Cho, PhD, Publisher, The Financial News “Sovereign Wealth Funds have evolved into a major influence in global financial markets and their sophistication and professionalism has grown rapidly. This publication sets out very clearly how sovereign wealth funds work and explains their important role not just in traditional fixed income and equity markets but also in alternative asset classes such as infrastructure projects , real estate and private equity.”—Robert Parker, Senior Adviser , Credit Suisse “Castelli and Scacciavillani have razed the conventional and parochial understanding of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) dominant in the twentieth century. In its place, they offer a compelling argument that SWFs are an epiphenomenon of a secular economic re-balancing and a shift toward a multipolar global economy.”—Angelo Calvello, PhD, CEO, Impact Investment Partners and author of Environmental Alpha: Climate Change and Institutional Investors “The Great Financial Crisis has highlighted the growing importance of SWFs as a stabilizing force in capital markets and as international institutional investors. They are moving away from being purely passive portfolio investors to becoming active, direct investors. They are moving away from traditional investments – no longer ‘safe’ and ‘risk free’ – in advanced economies towards emerging markets, supporting the latter’s increasing economic dominance. In the Middle East, which hosts some of the largest SWFs, their investment focus is turning towards domestic economic development objectives. The New Economics of Sovereign Wealth Fundsby Massimiliano Castelli & Fabio Scacciavillani is well-informed, comprehensive, well written by seasoned economists, who provide an excellent overview of the issues and dispel a variety of myths about SWFs. If you are interested in the changing global economic & financial geography and understanding how investment decisions by SWFs will change global capital flows, this book should be your guide.”—Dr Nasser Saidi, Chief Economist – DIFC, Dubai International Financial Centre "This well researched book pours light over usually non-transparent and sometimes mysterious Sovereign Wealth Funds, their investment activities, and their function in an evolving global system."—George Magnus, Senior Economic Adviser, UBS

The worldwide rise of sovereign wealth funds is emblematic of the ongoing transformation of nation-state economic prospects. Sovereign Wealth Funds maps the global footprints of these financial institutions, examining their governance and investment management, and issues of domestic and international legitimacy. Through a variety of case studies--from the China Investment Corporation to the funds of several Gulf states--the authors show that the forces propelling the adoption and development of sovereign wealth funds vary by country. The authors also show that many of these investment institutions have identifiable commonalities of form and function that match the core institutions of Western financial markets. The authors suggest that the international legitimacy of sovereign wealth funds is based on the degree to which their design and governance match Western expectations about investment management. Undercutting commonplace assumptions about the emerging world of the twenty-first century, the authors demonstrate that even small countries with large and globally oriented sovereign wealth funds are likely to play a significant role in international relations. Sovereign Wealth Funds considers how such financial organizations have altered not only the face of finance, but also the international geopolitical landscape.

Bassan provides a remarkable compendium on the relevant laws, regulations, and standards affecting sovereign wealth funds. These institutions are now at the very centre of the global financial system and demand greater appreciation of their distinctive qualities as well as their likely implications for nation-states and the global economy. Bassan s book is a unique contribution to understanding the governance and regulation of these institutions and will be an important resource book for those who must grapple with the growing power and global scope of these institutions. Gordon L. Clark, University of Oxford, UK and Monash University, Australia This book covers a true vacuum in international legal literature thanks to its multi-facet in-depth analysis of SWFs, a new type of protagonists of transnational investments in the global economy. It analyses critically the various approaches put forth to pinpoint real nature, legal set-up, relevant features in the diverse operating activity of SWF in the perspective of addressing the issue of the most appropriate regulation that would ensure two apparently conflicting goals: the protection of SWF investments and of host states legitimate concerns for vital national political or economic interests and the diverse activities. On this basis, the author reviews the various international hard and soft law regulations proposed and the relevance of existing disciplines including Bilateral Investment Treaties. The full coverage of the issue of sovereign immunity in respect of SWF is a useful completion of the author s analysis. Giorgio Sacerdoti, Bocconi University, Italy This book provides a definition and classification for Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) and discusses its phenomenon within the legal context. It identifies the rules applicable to SWFs and focuses on the bilateral relationships between states. In eight extensive chapters, Fabio Bassan considers whether SWFs may enjoy immunity with respect to host state measures as well as protection in Bilateral Investment Treaties Written from an international law perspective, The Law of Sovereign Wealth Funds will appeal to students of international business, international organizations, banks and governments.

Sovereign wealth funds are a growing and dynamic force in international finance. The shifting international economic relations from capital rich states gives them new power in influencing the global agenda. Despite controlling trillions of dollars in the biggest companies in the world, little is known about the opaque funds of oil rich and non-democratic governments. This is the first book to compile a history of sovereign wealth funds recounting the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority's involvement with the scandal-plagued BCCI bank and Chinese arms exports to Iran. By constructing a history within the proper context of oil-driven surpluses and large inflationary pressures with no international investment framework, this book explains the development and growth of sovereign wealth funds. The economics of capital surplus countries and investment strategies are examined in order to better understand sovereign wealth fund creation and growth. In a straightforward and accessible style, the author examines the complex and amazing growth of an unknown group of investors controlling trillions of dollars worldwide.
