Christopher Balding, Professor at the Peking University HSBC Business School, presented at ESADE Madrid his latest book, Sovereign Wealth Funds: the New Intersection of Money and Politics
, in which the author examines the challenges that confront sovereign wealth funds and the states that found them. During the lecture, which is part of the series of events organised by ESADEgeo
, Balding spoke about the different case studies that his book compiles, as well as its analysis of their historical, economic and financial framework. With this work Balding seeks to develop a deeper knowledge about sovereign investment funds, beginning with their history: the evolution from being small stabilisation funds to becoming the principal institutional investors.
