The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

  • Norway’s $500 billion SWF chief on losing money in recent global equity markets: “It happened very fast.”  Yes it did.
  • Temasek subsidiary Cedar Holdings sold its 8% stake in Thai Shin Corp. The latter “played a central role in the 2006 coup.”
  • Oz Future Fund has finally managed to reduce its shares of Telstra to a reasonable size. It has 100 million shares today. It had 2.1 billion in 2007.
  • Institutional investors increasingly dominating private equity secondaries market.
  • Sakha Republic (in Russia) wants an Alaska style sovereign fund sourced out of ‘mega projects‘ taxes.
  • Alberta Heritage Fund’s 1Q report underscores tough quarter for global investors.
  • I rarely see worthwhile articles on Algeria’s sovereign wealth or state investment vehicles. This is an exception.
  • It sounds like Korea’s NPS may be dealing with some legitimate corruption issues.
