(Polish title: Wolanie o pomoc. Suwerenne fundusze inwestycyjne a kwestia nowych kierunkow migracji kapitalu oraz ratowania zagrozonych upadkiem instytucji finansowych). The article provides a brief definition of the sovereign wealth fund notion and a deep comparison between SWFs and other types of investment funds both in terms of financial potential and ways of investing. Moreover, the Author of the article points out the differences of SWFs' investment policies in the historical context. Consecutively also the most spectacular cases of recapitalization of vulnerable financial institutions, which were hit by the subprime crisis, with the special acknowledgement of such investment banking giants as Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Merill Lynch, Barclays Bank or UBS, are discussed. On the basis of the examples mentioned above, the author tries to emphasize the role of sovereign wealth funds in today's highly globalized world economy and to show them as an example and proof of the visible changes in the global migration of capital. Additionally, the article itself is an attempt to discuss the possible scenarios of SWFs' future, whether they are going to grow to a dominant category of institutional investors or not, especially taking into consideration the fears of western countries and actions they that take to protect their economies against excess of Middle East and Asian state capital flows.
