Top Ten Tweets

Ashby Monk

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

  1. KIC Gets $3 billion cash top up.
  2. Ghana thinking of giving up its plan for a new SWF.  May opt for borrowing and spending. I.E. the opposite of an SWF.
  3. The good news? You’ve got more than $500 billion. The bad news? It’s hard to keep track of it all.
  4. An argument against SWFs.
  5. CIC’s Jin Liqun says China has set up China-ASEAN fund to finance infrastructural development in ASEAN countries.
  6. #WikiLeaks: Mervyn King thought SWFs could help to bail out banking sector in 2008. #LONDON000797
  7. I cannot think of anything SWF communications teams would want less on a Monday morning than to be dragged into the Madoff mess.
  8. Observation: Consultants often make outrageous predictions to get free PR. Case in point.
  9. Is Nigeria’s Excess Crude Account rebounding? Yeah, it kinda is. It helps that oil is $90 per barrel.
  10. New Zimbabwean SWF: A Diamond in the Rough?
