Given the definition of the European Commission and according to several experts, the differentiation between FSIS and other state-owned funds such as pension funds or international reserves is complicated because they are all controlled by central banks, serve as an instrument of transfer except for intergenerational equity and pension funds, be used as a stabilizer in the event of short-term complications.
We had tried to differentiate the FSI of the funds of international reserves, based on the trend of the first to maximize the benefit in the long term and regular use of the past as an instrument of monetary policy in the short term. The line of separation, however, is diffuse, because the possession of highly liquid assets easily convertible into cash-is very common in the FSI and other pension funds as a way of diversifying risk. In addition, many FSI does not have a stated goal, and in some cases, even if it may have little online behaviors with them. Commonly suspected (be afraid) that the FSI is a political tool rather than a financial instrument and therefore their investment criteria are marked more by the interests of the government that it has financial goals.

The sovereign funds are large and growing fast. Surrounded by secrecy and possibly manipulative, they are almost purposely designed to raise suspicions. That’s why the main threat they pose is of financial protectionism. And that is why the great rescue of Wall Street today is likely to provoke a reaction (negative) in Washington tomorrow.
The most common mistake is to think that FSI are produced exclusively from the exploitation of natural resources, although the majority conforms to this pattern. Specifically, 62 of funds surveyed by the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute (SWFI) is based on oil and gas .
