London, 24 May 2021 – Today, the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF), the global network of sovereign wealth funds, announces that it has admitted the Indonesia Investment Authority (INA) as an associate member. IFSWF now has 35 full members and six associate members, representing 40 countries from around the globe.
INA is a government fund established in 2020 under the law of the Republic of Indonesia to manage national investment, with the specific purpose of building wealth for future generations and contributing to Indonesia's economic development. INA’s mission is to deliver optimal returns, collaborate with established investors, create value and advance Indonesia’s competitiveness.
IFSWF associate membership is specifically for institutions in the early stages of becoming a sovereign wealth fund. By becoming an associate member, INA voluntarily agrees to work to apply the Generally Accepted Principles and Practices for governance, investment and risk management of sovereign wealth funds, known as the Santiago Principles®, as it puts its investment and risk management processes in place. Associate membership is granted for up to three years.
Majed Alromaithi, Chair of the IFSWF, said: “We are delighted to welcome INA as an associate member of the IFSWF. One of the core objectives of the Forum is to promote good governance and investment management practices by facilitating knowledge sharing between IFSWF’s full and associate members. By joining as an associate member, INA will benefit from the combined decades of our members’ experience to help it flourish as a world-leading investment institution.”
Dr Ridha D.M. Wirakusumah, Chief Executive Officer of INA, said, “We are honoured to be admitted as an associate member of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds. As a new SWF, INA will take stride in learning from global best practices, maintaining transparency and upholding the values which will guide us in the times ahead. We fully intend to fulfil our commitment of implementing the Santiago Principles in running our commercially and prudently driven investment organisation.”
