Top Ten Tweets

Ashby Monk

I’m trying out a new segment today on the blog. Basically, I spend all this time in the early mornings doing the Oxford SWF Project’s Twitter feed (@sovereignfund), and I’m fairly certain that only a small fraction of this blog’s readers actually see it. So, I’ve decided to go  back through this week’s tweets and highlight the top 10 most newsworthy. Without further ado:

  1. Infrastructure: Knut Kjaer says LT investors should get more involved, but managers need to create better products.
  2. So much for dynamism. US pension funds get interested in EM just in time for the bubble to burst.
  3. Norwegian MoF makes important fixed income allocation decision for GPF-G.  Limits “junk bonds” exposure to 3%.
  4. No new Israeli SWF in the “immediate future”. But it is something being talked about.
  5. First I’ve heard of ADIA’s Tawreed Investments. But it apparently has ~$500 million to invest in a single infra deal.
  6. Some praise for Kazakhstan’s National Welfare Fund (Samruk-Kazyna). On HuffPo?
  7. CIC No.2 (which is nothing like the original) is expected to start operations before year-end.
  8. Finance nerds take note: factor based asset allocation models getting some traction. This is a good thing…
  9. BusinessDay editorial calls for a new South African SWF to better manage mining wealth.
  10. Saudi’s Public Investment Fund puts $100 million into IFC’s African, Latin American and Caribbean Fund.
