I missed the chance to do a roundup of sovereign fund news on Friday, as I was up in Alberta, Canada learning about my homeland. (I was born in Edmonton). So here it is: Your top news items from the past week’s @sovereignfund Twitter feed:

  1. Nigeria officially has a new SWF.
  2. India continues to mull over new strategic SWF for energy investments.
  3. Some big Libyan Investment Authority revelations: Here us the source document.
  4. Israel moving closer towards a new SWF to manage looming gas revenues: Government expects > $150 billion.
  5. Aabar issues $1.76bil in convertible debt. (Note: Since Aabar went private bonds will convert into Daimler shares.)
  6. CIC agrees to be cornerstone investor in Huaneng Renewables’ IPO in Hong Kong.
  7. Abu Dhabi’s Invest AD (i.e., ADIC) will partner with Japan’s SBI in $100 million PE fund for Turkey.
