This chapter comments on the discussion presented in Chapter 12. It argues that Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) are neither market investors nor ‘imperialist capitalists’, but rather they operate under mechanisms that escape a traditional classification under Western typology. They are deeply interwoven with the political system they serve and show patterns both of market and political strategy. It concludes that the West does not have to fear most of the SWFs.
