Key Challenges for Official Institutions

March 2014


About the Research

In Q1 2014, FT Remark, in association with State Street, surveyed 62 senior executives from official institutions globally. Of these respondents, 58 percent were from central banks, 34 percent from sovereign wealth funds, and 8 percent from public pension reserve funds. In terms of geography, 45 percent were EMEA-based, with the remaining 29 percent and 26 percent based in APAC and the Americas, respectively.

Official institutions are required to be more adaptable than ever. In a fluid investment environment, where the market outlook is volatile and the regulatory sands are continually shifting, they need to be alert to both new risk and new opportunities.
