ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the growth of sovereign investments that keep lawyers busy with more complex compliance in the U.S. It mentions that sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) are bloated with reserves from oil wealth and industry and control an estimated $3 trillion in investments. With this, the officials in the U.S. and the European Union (EU) worry about the national security risks of buyers as state run companies keep on purchasing Western businesses. Moreover, it notes the move of the U.S. Congress to strengthen the national security of the nation and implemented policies for security.
