by ESADEgeo


ESADEgeo's new report, Sovereign Wealth Funds 2013, shows the decline in direct investments experienced by SWFs in 2012: from above $80bn to below $60bn.

This report, edited by Prof. Javier Santiso (ESADE Business School) includes both geographic and sectoral analysis. Our extensive geographic analysis focuese on Chinese, Middle East and Latin American funds. The sectoral analysis includes key insights on energy, real estate and venture capital.

As usual, we have made a zoom on Spain and Latin America. Spain remains as a key target country with SWFs investing close to $5bn in 2012-2013 (first half). Latin America is receiving more than $6bn from Singaporean, Korean, Chinese and Emirates SWFs.
