Sovereign wealth funds are stepping up their investment in alternatives as well as in emerging markets, according to a new survey. Invesco’s latest annual Global Sovereign Asset Management study showed that, in 2013, alternative investments were still the asset classes receiving the highest new asset allocations from sovereign investor portfolios, continuing the trend from the year before.
It said 51% of sovereign investors raised their new exposure to real estate in 2013, and 28% lifted their new investment to private equity, relative to their whole portfolio………………………………………..Full Article: Source
