The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

  • Wikileaks strikes again: In 2008, US Embassy staff in Singapore attempted to explain the GIC and Temasek. It seems to me the cable raises more questions than it answers.
  • The debate over a new Australian SWF for mining revenues is all over the Oz papers this. There are those for it and those against it.
  • The Qatar Investment Authority seems to be playing the role of white knight for Greece’s banking industry.
  • South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson is investigating fraud at the SC Retirement System. It’s not clear why, but an investigation has begun nonetheless.
  • The Iran Foreign Investment Corp (IFIC) is looking at some rather big investments in Southern Iraq.
  • Kazakhstan’s SWF expected to reach $72.5 billion by 2015.
  • The Palestine Investment Fund is launching a new investment program to help small enterprises in refugee camps.
  • Former Deputy Chairman of the GIC Tony Tan was elected as Singapore’s next President.
