Sovereign Fund of Egypt enters SWF global rankings at # 43: The Sovereign Fund of Egypt (SFE) ranks 43rd out of the world's 93 sovereign wealth funds in the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute’s (SWFI) latest rankings. The fund currently owns assets worth almost USD 12 bn, accounting for 0.14% of the holdings of state-owned funds around the world, Al Arabiya reported.
