Understanding the Impact of Sovereign Wealth Funds on the Financial Markets

    Project Description

    A sovereign wealth fund (SWF) is an investment fund managed by a government or other organisation on behalf of a sovereign state. The impact of SWFs on international financial markets and their behaviour are of great importance to market participants as well as policy makers. The project aims to measure the systemic risk contribution of SWFs and to analyse the anti-takeover provisions of SWFs' target firms. In addition, the project aims to understand the relation between anti-takeover provisions and target firm value and will examine the role of SWFs as a socially responsible investor. The expected outcomes will improve our understanding of the impact of SWFs on the Australian financial markets in terms of social and economic well-being.
