SWF Institute opens trading platform
Tuesday, 21 July 2009 11:25am

The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute has launched a confidential trading platform that allows some of the biggest institutional investors to trade assets.

Wholly owned by the institute, the Imbourse platform provides capital introduction between buyers and sellers to provide a cheaper, confidential and liquid way to trade.

The platform provides access to hedge, equity and private equity funds and also allows sovereign wealth funds to search for large scale assets such as real estate offices and large scale infrastructure projects.

The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute said the platform allows institutional investors to save resources as many investors struggle to build internal team and effective trading systems.

For sellers, it provides another option for them to sell large scale assets.

The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute's membership includes the Australian Future Fund, China Investment Corporation, Kuwait Investment Authority and Singapore based Temasek Holdings.
