UAE. Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, the world's biggest sovereign wealth fund, said it supports a code of 24 voluntary principles for sovereign wealth funds presented to a committee of the International Monetary Fund yesterday.

The International Working Group of Sovereign Wealth Funds, co-chaired by ADIA Director Hamad Al Hurr Al-Suwaidi, is also exploring the creation of Standing Group of Sovereign Wealth Funds, ADIA said in an e-mailed statement today.

ADIA, which according to the Economist Intelligence Unit has assets of about US$875 billion, set up an inter-departmental committee to oversee its compliance with the Generally Agreed Principles and Practices for the wealth funds, the statement said.
