Top Ten Tweets

Here they are: your top news items from the past week’s @sovereignfund feed:

  1. Nigeria’s government excited about new SWF. One final hurdle to go!
  2. The ECB’s online “monetary policy game” is pretty awesome. And addictive.
  3. Kuwait Investment Authority will put roughly $800 million into France’s Areva.
  4. Zimbabwe to set up new SWF for diamond revenues. Tough to picture a well-governed fund in Zimbabwe. #badideajeans
  5. What do you do when you have a failing financial institution that needs a bailout? You head to the Gulf.  #Ireland
  6. McKinsey to GE in 2007: ‘Don’t worry about GE Cap. SWFs and their investments will prevent liquidity crisis’.  #badadvice
  7. SWFs “waking up to Latin America“.
  8. Funny: This was what SWFs had in mind when they were bailing out our financial institutions in 2007. #TARP #CITI
  9. FF’s David Murray believes that Australia should have a commodity fund. Wants to expand the mandate of the Future Fund.
  10. Interesting. GPF-G seems to rely on academics for advice. First Ang et al on active management and now Dimson on risk.
