Power players: How sovereign wealth funds are reshaping global investment for the long term

​​​​​​​​​​​Why now? Representing approximately 10% of global GDP, sovereign wealth funds are now a major force in global investment and ​venture capital. As these funds shift their focus from legacy industries and government bonds to technology startups and private equity, they are increasingly shaping global markets themselves. Urgent questions? How are SWFs different from other megafunds? What policies will encourage SWFs to invest in innovation while ensuring long-term stability? How should companies organize around the rising influence of SWFs? Key takeaways? New perspectives on how SWFs will change the global investment landscape and ways to partner and co-invest. ​
