Abstract and Keywords

During the last decade, Spain has become a sovereign wealth fund (SWF) investment destination. This chapter begins by outlining the factors that have led SWFs to Spain. Second, it discusses the different corporate strategies that SWFs exhibit when investing in Spanish companies. It examines these investments in the context of an existing typology of four different strategic governance approaches: corporate governance supervision, in-house capabilities enhancement, international recognition and developmental and learning goals. It then shows how these four strategies are effectively implemented drawing on four investment SWF cases in Spain. The chapter concludes by proposing four new areas of fruitful research on SWFs in fields such as economics, management and international business.

Keywords: sovereign wealth funds, corporate governance, state capitalism, institutional investors, activism, ownership, Spain, long-term capitalism
