Sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) have gained traction in recent years as effective capital pools created by governments to invest surplus funds in markets, both internationally and domestically. This chapter looks at the role that SWFs can play in Australia’s next resources boom, and whether SWFs can provide a sustainable development pathway through an alternative and innovative investment structure such as social impact investing. We shed light on the dynamics and role of SWFs in promoting sustainable development in Australia and the role of impact investing for accelerating sustainable development.
