Title Sovereign wealth funds in the globalization of financial markets
Author Djordje Cuzovic
Abstract This paper analyses the investment funds with special emphasis on Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs), as new participants in the financial market. Considering that financial markets are one of the main carriers of globalization, our goal is to investigate development and the role of these investment funds with reference to contemporary theory and progressive practice of the market of developed countries. Although SWFs emerged in practice more than fifty years ago, they are not sufficiently explored in the theory.
