My research draws on the case of the Saudi Public Investment Fund to explore the effects of internal political dynamics on sovereign wealth management. I am investigating how intra-elite dynamics, regime structures and state-society relations in the post-2015 Saudi political landscape shape the sovereign wealth fund's institutional design and behaviour, whether in the Kingdom or across the global financial market. I am particularly interested in the multiple facets surrounding the relationship between states and the financial market.
