The economic report highlighted the significant role played by Gulf sovereign wealth funds in the development plans of their respective countries, emphasizing their contribution to strategic sectors and their increasing importance in both local and international economies.

As the assets under management of these funds are expected to grow substantially in the coming years, they are poised to play an even more prominent role in driving sustainable economic growth and supporting investment initiatives, reports Al-Qabas daily.

According to the report, Gulf sovereign funds have benefited from the recent oil boom and economic prosperity, emerging as major global investors and significantly increasing their deal-making activities. Despite their relatively recent establishment, these funds have continuously evolved their investment strategies and have been supported by the expertise of foreign managers and experts.

Diversification strategies are a key focus for Gulf sovereign wealth funds, aligning with the region’s efforts to reduce dependence on oil and achieve sustainable economic growth. These funds have become drivers of green investment initiatives and environmental and corporate governance globally, while also actively investing in developed markets such as America and Europe.

Furthermore, Gulf sovereign wealth funds are increasingly directing investments towards supporting their local economies and creating wealth for future generations. They are financing large-scale financial rescue packages, investments, and acquisition deals globally, while also driving investments to support economic diversification plans and the transition to low-carbon economies in the region.

Overall, Gulf sovereign wealth funds are playing a vital role in shaping the economic landscape of the region, driving diversification efforts, and contributing to sustainable growth and development. Their continued evolution and strategic investments are expected to have a lasting impact on both local and international economies in the years to come.
