One of the chapters in the IMF’s new Global Financial Stability Report is entitled “Long-Term Investors and Their Asset Allocation: Where Are They Now?” Here’s a blurb:
“The asset allocation decisions of investors are at the core of financial flows between markets, currencies, and countries. This chapter aims to identify the fundamental drivers for these decisions and determine whether their influence has been altered by the global financial crisis and the subsequent low interest rate environment in advanced economies.”
It’s really an interesting read, as the chapter goes in depth into the performance and behavior of sovereign funds (among other types of funds).
Anyway, I’ve grabbed some of the best charts below for your looking pleasure. Have a nice weekend!
