Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute and Park Alpha Launch Sovereign Wealth Fund Strategic Index


The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute (SWFI) and Park Alpha, a subsidiary of the SWFI that provides consulting services to investment firms and SWFs, announced the launch of the Sovereign Wealth Fund Strategic Index (SWFSI).

Las Vegas, NV (I-Newswire) October 20, 2010 - The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute (SWFI) and Park Alpha, a subsidiary of the SWFI that provides consulting services to investment firms and SWFs, announced the launch of the Sovereign Wealth Fund Strategic Index (SWFSI). The SWFSI is a market capitalization weighted index that gauges strategic sovereign wealth fund investment in public equity markets around the world. Currently, the index includes 37 publicly traded equity securities and serves as a benchmark to track publicly traded strategic investor performance.

The SWFSI is a proxy to illustrate strategic government cross-border equity investment flows. Government funds can use the index as a policy benchmark to compare their direct equity investment performance. Furthermore, emerging sovereign wealth funds and other investors can get SWF strategic public equity exposure by investing in a vehicle that mimics the index.

The Sovereign Wealth Fund Strategic Index is managed by the SWFI Index Committee, which is composed of members from both the SWFI and Park Alpha. The index is rebalanced on a semi-annual basis.

"The Sovereign Wealth Fund Strategic Index can provide investors, policymakers, researchers, media and economists with a means to gauge the level and performance of sovereign wealth fund strategic investment in public equity markets," said Carl Linaburg, Senior Vice President and Co-Founder of the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute. He continues that "the index can be used as a benchmark, or a way to access sovereign wealth fund strategic public equity investments on an aggregate level."

With success in following, tracking and publishing reports on the sovereign wealth fund space; the SWFI has emerged as the leader in this market segment. The company's growing consumer base and product variety has enabled them to offer the SWFSI to sovereign wealth funds and other investment related organizations.
