The fifth edition of the GSR Scoreboard will be released in eight weeks’ time, on Monday, July 1, 2024. Since 2020, Global SWF has issued an annual assessment of the best practices of state-owned investors around Governance, Sustainability, and Resilience.

In 2024, we have introduced changes to three of the Sustainability elements, which we deemed necessary given the evolution of the industry and of responsible investing. The 25 elements have been re-arranged into different sub-sections and applied to the world’s Top 200 sovereign wealth funds and public pension funds. Seven funds of recent creation or increasing importance are rated for the first time.

The assessment tool has gained recognition as the thermometer of the industry’s best practices, as it is independent (not commissioned by any party), objective (based on publicly available information only), and quantifiable (25 elements responded binarily). Last year’s report with more information on methodology and elements can be easily accessed at

This week, the Global SWF team will communicate the preliminary results of our analysis to all 200 funds. The funds will then have six weeks, until June 14, 2024, to decide to engage, discuss the results, and point us to additional information we may have missed.

The final report will include a market update of the first six months of 2024, as well as all 5,000 data points collected and a detailed analysis on the results of the GSR Scoreboard. In addition, we will feature an exclusive interview with a leading investor, and three case studies for the “champions in Governance”, the “champions in Sustainability” and the “champions in Resilience”.

Lastly, we will host a presentation to go through the market update and the results of the exercise during the first week of July. This may be for the first time in person, in New York City – more details to follow.
