Building Excellence in the Management of Public Financial Assets and Sovereign Wealth


The development of financial markets and human capital promotes economic well-being. A supportive and skilled public sector also facilitates the advancement of capital markets, thereby fostering economic progress.

The Milken Institute and World Bank Treasury, in collaboration with Singapore Management University, are launching the Public Financial Asset Management (PFAM) Program to build global excellence in public financial asset strategy, management and governance.

The PFAM Program, which extends over a period of eight rigorous months, aims to provide public pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, central banks and pension fund regulators with an exhaustive understanding and a practical peek into the realm of global macro and sovereign wealth, investment strategy and financial markets broadly.
