13th Annual Global East Government Funds
Virtual Roundtable

Mar 1st - Mar 5th 2021
Virtual Event

The 13th Annual Global East Government Funds Virtual Roundtable brings together senior investment decision-makers from the world’s sovereign wealth funds, public pension plans and central bank reserve management funds. The event is hosted by Institutional Investor’s Sovereign Investor Institute (SII), a private, global community of sovereign and government investors. SII is a completely independent organisation, and each event aims to provide a neutral platform for sovereign funds to candidly exchange best-practices, generate investment ideas and brainstorm solutions together in a collegial setting.

The Virtual Roundtable is SII’s global meeting for the Asia-pacific region, and one of a series of annual events hosted in different regions across the world. 

All discussions at the Roundtable are governed by Chatham House Rule. The event is closed to media and by invitation only to senior fund decision-makers. This ensures open and productive discussions with an effective exchange of ideas amongst peers. In-person and virtual content will be incorporated throughout the day.
