Sovereign Investor Forum

Central Banking Publications is pleased to announce the 2nd Sovereign Investor Forum will take place on 21st November at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi.

With an esteemed line-up of international speakers, drawn from across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the forum will inform and provide insight to all participants over the one day. The day's sessions will present a comprehensive overview of the challenges and opportunities facing sovereign investors.

Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) are expected to manage an increasing share of foreign exchange reserves. Compared to central banks, SWFs have higher risk tolerance and invest less in US assets. This forum will cover everything from managing funds and portfolios in the uncertain and unchartered investment environment to mitigating risks.

Topics include:

  • Changes to arise in sovereign portfolio repositioning over the past 12 months
  • The critical role of investing in illiquid assets
  • Building a successful and diversified alternatives portfolio
  • Dollarization vs De-Dollarization - Is it time for a real alternative?
  • Emerging markets as an asset class
  • Capital flows: a perspective from the Middle East
  • Updating currency composition to cope with the challenges of rising yields 
  • 2017 and beyond - How sovereign investors could rebalance their portfolios

Reasons to attend:

  • An informed programme researched and developed with official institutions and powered by Central Banking Publications' editorial expertise and insight
  • Insightful presentations by industry leaders and experts
  • Interactive group discussion providing the opportunity for all attendees to engage
  • A unique closed forum environment to facilitate a confidential exchange of ideas and lively discussion with your peers
