2016 Sovereign Wealth Fund Conference Proceedings

The third annual Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF) Conference was convened to assess the major question of, “Can SWFs survive a prolonged commodity price weakness?” on October 6, 2016 at American University (AU) in Washington, D.C.

The purpose of the conference was to assess the resilience and the survival of the SWFs considering the recent rapid decline in commodity prices. The conference addressed two major issues: the current environment and recent developments, challenges, lessons, and prospects that SWFs are facing; and how SWFs could and should react to these rising challenges.
