Abstract

The growing size and significance of investments by Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) and State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), especially those of rapidly growing Asian economies, are having a profound impact on the dynamics of markets across the world. Better understanding global state investment capital is an increasingly important strategic priority for governments, regulators, finance sector participants and other stakeholders. This is particularly the case for Australia given the economic and political reality that its stability and economic well-being is increasingly intertwined with Asian jurisdictions that are active state investment actors. This paper draws on the early stages of a research project that seeks to map from an Australian perspective these transformational forces.
