The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

  • The Kuwait Investment Authority is setting up a representative office in Beijing.
  • Abu Dhabi’s Invest AD is part of an investor consortium that is launching an infrastructure project (to build private sewage) in Bahrain.
  • France’s CDC will offer a €3 billion package to finance loans to local authorities.
  • It’s not surprising (but still interesting) to see that Korea’s National Pension Service and the Kuwait Investment Authority sold all their holdings of Fannie and Freddie.
  • The Qatar Investment Authority is apparently in the mix for Dexia assets.
  • China’s Central Huijin, a subsidiary of CIC, is supporting the country’s largest banks by buying their shares.
  • Alberta is following Norway’s lead on ethical divesting.
  • Alaska Permanent Fund is zeroing in on a new CIO: Current frontrunners are Maria Tsu and Jay Willoughby.
  • “Anonymous” offers $1.42 billion for a Luxembourg private bank. (I wonder what the buyer’s plans are for banking secrecy.)
