The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute has released a list of the 100 most significant and impactful public investor executives of 2013.
 
The people on the list were chosen by SWFI staff - not influenced by asset managers, governments or consultants.
 
They come from medium to large-sized asset owners - sovereign wealth funds, public pensions, superannuation funds, central banks and other public investors. The size of managed assets is not the only criteria for ranking inclusion. Another significant factor is that some of these individuals have contributed or been part of important trends in the asset owner industry. Last, there are obvious names that could not have been left off the ranking.
 
29th place - Kirill Dmitriev, Chief Executive Officer Russian Direct Investment Fund
 
Ivy-educated Kirill Dmitriev, the energetic chief executive officer of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF). has carefully crafted a network of mega institutional capital - driving investment into Russia’s growing sectors. With immense interest from Western private equity funds and Asian and Gulf-based public investors, the RDIF has tunneled capital to once off-hand opportunities.
 
An influential figure in Russian finance circles, Dmitriev is no stranger to private equity. From 2007 to 2011, he was president of Icon Private Equity.
 
Dmitriev planted his seeds early as he served as chairman of the Russian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association. He is a former Goldman Sachs and McKinsey & Company alumnus.
