The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Let the daily briefing begin:

  • The Government of Singapore Investment Corporation’s latest Annual Report is out!
  • The China Investment Corporation’s latest Annual Report is out!
  • US public pension funds have written an open letter to Obama and Congress urging both sides to blink on debt ceiling standoff.
  • FT Tilt has a nice profile of Samruk Kazyna’s Timur Kulibayev and his new status as “Successor“.
  • There are some interesting ideas coming out of Thailand about sovereign funds. Note: the Central Bank is incurring huge losses on its forex operations (issuing @ 3% and buying @ .25%).
  • Caisse des Depots et Consignations is selling a few hundred million in PE assets…so they can buy some new PE assets.
  • Deep thought: “There is a mentality among some SWF professionals that it is better not to lose than it is to win.” (i.e., “CYA”)
