Asia launch of the fifth annual GPI

18:30 Tue 17 Jul 2018


Global Public Investor is devoted to public sector asset ownership and management across official institutions, with the aim of spreading best practice among central banks, sovereign funds and public pension funds. Some of our lead contributors include: José Ángel Gurría, secretary general of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development; Nestor Espenilla, governor of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; Yasuyuki Sawada, chief economist at the Asian Development Bank; Tan Yeow Seng, chief cybersecurity officer at the Monetary Authority of Singapore; and Liam Fox, the UK secretary of state for international trade.

Moderated by OMFIF Chairman David Marsh, the discussion at the launch will focus on investment trends in the public sector and how Asian global public investors are performing. It will gather GPIs, financial regulators, and representatives from the private sector, academia and media.
