Strategic Investment Funds

Establishment and Operations Author: Shanthi Divakaran, Håvard Halland, Gianni Lorenzato, Paul Rose, and Sebastian Sarmiento-Saher

Strategic investment funds (SIFs) are special-purpose investment vehicles backed by governments or public institutions that seek a double bottom line of financial and economic returns. They invest in, and mobilize commercial capital to, sectors and regions where private investors would not invest or would invest to a limited extent. This book discusses the key decision points for the policy maker setting up a SIF.
