Sovereign investment funds

The PwC Sovereign investment funds team brings insight and specialist knowledge that can help SWFs in improving performance.


Sovereign Investment Funds (SIF) are state-owned and backed investors including Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWF), state-backed investment arms, and public pension funds (PPF).

PwC is a leading advisor to this global investor community. With hubs in Abu Dhabi, Singapore, New York, and London, PwC’s global Sovereign Investment Fund team advises government agencies and Sovereign funds themselves on transactions and investment structuring, capital allocation strategies, operating models and portfolio value creation.

SIFs are expected to play an increasingly influential role at a local, regional and global level. That growth will be overwhelmingly influenced by three megatrends: digitisation, decarbonisation and deglobalisation.
