Global SWF Data Platform - Sovereign Wealth Funds & Public Pension Funds

Global SWF is an innovative and comprehensive Data Platform that tracks circa 430 Sovereign Wealth Funds (“SWFs”) and Public Pension Funds (“PPFs”). The interactive tool provides insights into the portfolios and executives of the most prolific funds, in terms of size, investment activity and market interest.

The overall strategy and macro environment of a country – which we call “Country Inc” – is crucial to understanding the context in which SWFs and PPFs operate. The table below displays the 50 most important outbound countries, along with the number and size of the vehicles operating in each of them. For the breakdown and details of specific funds, please refer to the next tab, “Top 100”.
