Sovereign wealth funds to increase their investments in risky assets again But the focus is shifting towards emerging markets, infrastructure as well as alternative energies

Frankfurt am Main, (lifePR) - Sovereign wealth funds have developed into important market participants and manage more than USD 3.5 trillion worldwide. Since 2002, they have multiplied their assets, even though they have been affected by the financial crisis. Sovereign wealth funds currently sit on high cash reserves, which will not help them in the long term, As a result, they will have to increase their investments in risky assets again. This is the conclusion of a study by Dr. Bernhard Eschweiler, Senior Economic Advisor of Silvia Quandt & Cie. AG. He says: "sovereign wealth fund investments - unlike 2007 and 2008 - will become smaller and more diversified with the focus shifting from industrial countries towards emerging markets as well as from financial institutions to infrastructure and alternative energies."

Unlike central banks' foreign reserves, which had been well shielded by conservative investment policies, sovereign wealth funds have had significant exposure to shares and alternative products which have been affected considerably by the financial crisis. Excluding net asset inflows, sovereign wealth funds have lost approximately 15 percent of their asset values in 2008/09. In addition, asset inflows fell dramatically due to lower oil prices and the recession and some sovereign wealth funds had to support their governments' stabilisation measures. Now with recovery under way, sovereign wealth funds are experiencing rising inflows again. That said a return to the size of pre-crisis inflows seems unlikely. Even with less buoyant growth, however, total assets of sovereign wealth funds will probably exceed six trillion dollars in five years time.
