Leading Global Law Firm Baker McKenzie is launching a new exclusive legal insights portal for members of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Fund (IFSWF). The Firm will manage and be the exclusive content editor to the portal, which provides relevant and up-to-date legal and regulatory insights and analysis on issues that matter to IFSWF members.
James Burdett, Co-Chair of Baker McKenzie's Investment Funds Group, who was responsible for the portal's development, said, "We were very pleased to work with the IFSWF to bring this service to its members. With our unrivalled sovereign wealth fund client base and deep understanding of the issues affecting all types of SWF, we are well placed to bring our insights to bear on the myriad issues they face when investing capital, managing assets and resolving disputes."
Duncan Bonfield, Chief Executive Officer of IFSWF commented "We are delighted to have Baker McKenzie partnering with us and are excited about the significant value-add that this key initiative will deliver for our members".
The IFSWF is a voluntary organisation of global sovereign wealth funds committed to working together and strengthening the community through dialogue, research and self-assessment. It represents a group of more than 30 sovereign wealth funds from around the globe, with a variety of mandates and at various stages in their development (for further information, on the IFSWF please click here).
