The Public Funds Investment Policies Survey is an annual publication, now in its fifth year, which surveys the current investment policy disclosures of the 26 largest (by AUM) sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) in the world, as listed by the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute, and the 25 largest (by AUM) sovereign pension funds (SPFs). The policies reviewed in this survey were obtained directly from the funds when possible, using data available as of December 2017. Because a minority of funds (primarily SWFs) do not disclose investment policies, caution should be used in interpreting these results. Many funds may have extensive internal policies but choose not to disclose these policies, and the lack of disclosure should not be taken as evidence that such policies do not exist.
