ABSTRACT
The article reports on sovereign wealth funds (SWFs), state-owned investment vehicles that may include such assets as stocks, real estate, and precious metals. It is reported that the announced 2008-2009 credit crisis provided SWFs a chance to recapitalize Western markets through vast foreign investments, resulting in foreign states' taking sizeable ownership of many publicly traded Western corporations. The need for a mandatory, uniform legal regulatory scheme regarding SWFs in the European Union is addressed to prevent fracturing its internal structure.
