State General Reserve Fund is a sovereign wealth fund in Oman. It is one of few entities where the Sultanate of Oman channels its excess oil revenues. It was founded in 1980 by a royal decree and is a member of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds and is therefore signed up to the Santiago Principles on best practice in managing sovereign wealth funds.[1] Its objectives are purely financial. That means it does not invest in companies with the view of otherwise benefiting the local economy, nor other goals.
