SovereigNET - Fletcher Network for Sovereign Wealth and Global Capital

Welcome to SovereigNET!

SovereigNET is a unique interdisciplinary network at Tufts University's Fletcher School dedicated to the study of sovereign wealth management and its impact on global capital markets. Our mission is to advance research, advisory leadership, and education on the role of the sovereign as institutional investor.




Our work is a key initiative of Fletcher’s Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC). The Institute was founded in recognition of the need for a new approach to the study of international business and capital markets — one that prepares global business leaders with essential "contextual intelligence." Through four core activities — education, research, dialogue, and lab — the Institute provides an interdisciplinary lens through which global markets and the underlying drivers of change can be understood.
