Implementing the Santiago Principles: from demonstrating commitment to creating value

At the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF) eighth annual meeting in Auckland, published a new volume of case studies describing members’ experiences in applying the Santiago Principles, the code of best practice that all IFSWF members agree to uphold. These cases highlight the benefits bestowed by the transparency, accountability and investment frameworks recommended by the Principles. Full self-assessments by 28 members will be published online in early 2017.

Commenting on the publication of the case studies, IFSWF Chair, Adrian Orr, the Chief Executive of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund, said “the publication of these case studies is an important step in helping others understand our members better. Better understanding will provide our members with more efficient access to opportunities, better performance by each member fund and a stronger financial system overall.”
