The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Good morning! Here’s your daily dose of interesting news:

  • Predictably, all the predictions about a CIC bailout of EU sovereigns never materialized.
  • How’s the CPPIB navigating its way through this crisis? Buying stuff and hiring people. That’s long-term investing, folks.
  • Investors are increasingly bullish on Africa. Get there.
  • Harvard’s endowment is now at $32 billion.
  • A subsidiary of ADIC introduces new “Gold to Go” vending machines. (‘Gold. Don’t leave home without it.’)
  • GIC, the single biggest shareholder in UBS, wasn’t consulted in management change.
