The idea behind this publication is to assess the extent to which Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF) could fulfill a mandate that would extend beyond the pursuit and obtainment of financial returns. This means to assess indeed the potential of these investment vehicles with regards to the adoption of responsible investment practices and to the direct or indirect financing of development either domestically or in third countries.
The research has been developed during my PhD in Political Science – International Cooperation curricula – that I have recently completed at Sapienza University of Rome under the supervision of prof. Roberto Pasca di Magliano.
In particular, the analysis is going to investigate into the characteristics that differentiate SWF from other large investors in the adoption of responsible investment guidelines by also presenting some SWF that have already undertaken that direction.
My thanks go to the Roma Sapienza Foundation – International Cooperation – and to its Scientific Committee which has decided to reward my Phd dissertation with this publication.
