Sovereign wealth funds control trillions of dollars in assets, and their role in global markets is expected to expand significantly in the years to come.  USCIB and the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD will hold a lunchtime panel discussion, coinciding with the fall World Bank/IMF meetings, to explore recent developments in the debate over open markets and SWFs.  Senior representatives of the OECD, major sovereign wealth funds and the United States Treasury will discuss their views on how best to promote policies to keep markets open for SWF investments.

The panel of experts, to be moderated by a leading figure from the media, will include:

  • OECD Secretary General Angel Gurría (accepted)
  • Deputy Treasury Secretary Robert Kimmitt (invited)
  • High-level representatives from key sovereign wealth funds

The discussion will feature presentations by each panelist, followed by general discussion and Q&A with the audience.  Additional details coming soon.  Please join us for this timely and informative discussion.
