The Sovereign Investor Institute (SII), is a private global community of sovereign and government funds supported by a group of leading global financial institutions. The institute, which evolved from a gathering in London in 2005, provides an independent platform for sovereign wealth funds, government pension funds, central banks and large public pension plan managers to exchange ideas and build relationships with their peers and industry thought leaders. SII hosts annual Global Roundtables in London and Singapore, and provides access to regional Roundtables in Asia, the Middle East, and Canada. Each gathering addresses important themes as requested by senior investment officials at leading sovereign and government funds.
