The head of the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund has been found dead after going missing four days ago.
Sheikh Ahmed bin Zayed al Nahyan’s body was pulled from a reservoir south of the Morroccan capital of Rabat on Tuesday. The glider he was riding crashed into the body of water on Friday; he was 41 years old.
Ahmed, the younger brother of Abu Dhabi’s ruler, headed the Gulf state’s Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, which manages upwards of US$700 million. Control of the sovereign fund is expected to remain within Abu Dhabi’s ruling family.
