Sovereign wealth funds have been diversifying their portfolios away from cash and moving into equities and alternative investments, says Institutional Investor, citing the International Monetary Fund’s latest Global Financial Stability Report. Sovereign funds, like many institutional investors, appear to be moving out on the risk curve in a search for returns in today’s low interest rate environment. Australia’s Future Fund and China Investment Corp. reduced their cash holdings by more than 50 percent between December 2007 and December 2010, and increased allocations to equities, alternatives and bonds.
