Ethiopian Investment Holdings has been approved as an associate member of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds, a global network of sovereign wealth funds from over 40 countries. It includes some of the world's largest sovereign wealth funds such as the China Investment Corporation, and the Kuwait and Abu Dhabi investment authorities. Ethiopian Investment Holdings was formed earlier this year with an approved capital of 100 billion Br. In February, Mamo Mihretu was chosen to lead the fund as chief executive officer (CEO). It sources funding from a pool of state-owned assets it administers; returns and revenues on the investment of the proceeds of its assets; sales of its assets and enterprises; and loans and other facilities such as bonds.
