The largest sovereign wealth funds in the world

One of the underappreciated trends in the last two decades in the financial markets is the rise of large cash pools like sovereign wealth funds, pensions, endowments, foundations, corporate treasuries, family offices, and more. This is excluding the large asset managers. Combined, these large cash pools manage trillions in assets that are not just invested in stocks and bonds but in alternatives like venture capital, private equity, farmland, natural resources, infrastructure, real estate, and more. They are mostly long term investors and have a substantial impact on the markets.

The biggest trend in the last decade has been the shift away from just stocks and bonds to alternatives like private equity, venture capital, real estate, and other investments.

# Sovereign Wealth Funds in Theory and Practice


Any Idea why India did not build Sovereign Weath fund ?

Borrowing money and using that to run investment fund does not really makes sense.
