Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) Expands Portfolio Overseas

Earlier this year, South Africa’s Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) began its much-publicized investment push overseas.

The most notable news of this year’s announcement is that part of the 18.6 billion rand the GEPF have set aside for acquisitions has already been invested in emerging markets while it considers a review of the fund’s exposure to the resource sector.
