The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

  • SWFs are apparently showing “a very keen interest in British nuclear.”
  • Kazakhstan’s SWF has offered up some rather candid details on its negotiating position for a gas field.
  • Temasek loses another President.
  • Thailand’s Finance Ministry and Central Bank have decided against setting up a new SWF. Apparently, they’re worried about political intrusions in the fund’s management. Fair enough.
  • The Alaska Permanent Fund Corp. is upping its infrastructure allocation.
  • Infrastructure demand is set to hit historically high levels in Sub-Saharan Africa, which has left governments scrambling to find new sources of financing. (See previous bullet point and this paper.)
