OMFIF has set up the OMFIF Foundation, aiming to improve the functioning of official financial institutions in global business, finance and civil society.

With a long-term focus on increasing understanding of these institutions’ far-reaching operations and investments, the Foundation will undertake activities in education, research and public policy with partners around the world. The Foundation, a not-for-profit body in London, operates across the sectors that form the centrepiece of the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum – central banks, sovereign funds, public pension agencies and other public investment institutions.

The Foundation will operate on a broader range than OMFIF with a wider set of partners among public institutions, governments, academia, training and capacity-building entities and other non-commercial bodies.

The board of directors of the Foundation comprises:

  • Dr. Zeti Aziz, Governor, Bank Negara Malaysia (2000-16)
  • Mark Burgess, Managing Director, Australian Future Fund (2011-14)
  • Prof. Lord Meghnad Desai, Emeritus Professor, London School of Economics and Political Science
  • Lord Norman Lamont, UK Chancellor of the Exchequer (1990-93)
  • David Marsh, Managing Director, OMFIF
  • John Plender, Chairman, OMFIF

The OMFIF Foundation

Established to provide a long-term focus for studying these institutions’ much expanded operations, The OMFIF Foundation will undertake activities in education, research and public policy with partners from many different countries and regions.

The Foundation, a not-for-profit body domiciled in London, will operate across the sectors that already provide the focus of the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum – central banks, sovereign funds, public pension agencies and other public investment institutions.

The Foundation will become an independent entity but will operate in its first year in close co-operation with OMFIF as it builds up long-term activities and funding. The Foundation will operate on a broader range than OMFIF with a wider set of partners among public institutions, governments, academe, training and capacity-building companies and other non-commercial bodies.
