JEDDAH/DUBAI — The seventh Invesco Global Sovereign Asset Management Study, an annual in-depth report on the complex investment behavior of sovereign wealth funds and central banks, revealed that 88% of investors in the Middle East have exposure to China, versus 73% for all investors globally.

This year’s study was conducted face-to-face amongst 139 individual sovereign investors and central bank reserve managers across the globe representing $20.3 trillion of assets, of which 71 are central banks (62 in 2018), reflecting their growing status as sovereign investors.

China’s attractiveness rating for sovereign investors has improved more than any other major region since 2017.
