The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

If you’re coming to Institutional Investor’s Government Fund’s Roundtable in DC today, don’t hesitate to say hello! In the meantime:

  • How much did the National Pension Reserve Fund lose on its Irish banking investment due to the government’s directed investment policy? Over $5 billion. (Now that’s what I call a ‘rogue trade’!)
  • Is the CIC setting up shop in London?
  • There’s lots of buzz over Abu Dhabi Investment Council’s wonderful new building.
  • Ontario Teachers signs the ‘aspirational and voluntary’ PRI.
  • China Investment Corporation investing in Vietnamese thermal power plants.
  • The ‘Farmland PRI‘: Coming some to some crops near you.
  • Malaysia’s Khazanah Nasional Bhd is looking to issue the world’s first yuan-denominated Islamic bonds.
  • Kirill Dmitriev of Russia’s new RDIF describes the country’s new SWF.  (Video)
