Sovereign funds and emerging markets. In 2010, Sovereign Funds (SF) invested over 60% of their portfolios in non-OECD nations. Over US $30 bn of the money came from China, Latin America (basically Brazil) and South-East Asia (Malaysia and Singapore). Sovereign Funds and the Spanish link with Latin America. Recent movements in CEPSA, Iberdrola and Santander show the interest Spain has in entering the burgeoning Latin American market. ESADEgeo: Agenda for activities covering Sovereign Funds. We propose a range of activities combining theoretical arguments and practical activities (SF operations and strategies, drawing up business case studies, annual conferences and a special Executive Education programme).
