The Daily Brief

 Ashby Monk

  • Introducing the new $4 billion “Russian-Chinese Investment Fund.” It’s sort of a segregated account for the CIC within the Russian Direct Investment Fund.
  • Here’s a sign the global economy isn’t improving: CPPIB just made a big investment in ‘dollar stores‘.
  • A group of investors has decided to band together to push back against short termism. I like it.
  • SOFAZ has a fancy new website. Worth a look.
  • CalPERS apparently paid $5 million in bonuses last year, while Goldman Sachs paid $16 billion. Both those numbers are ridiculous.
  • Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala is making a long-term investment in developing…local tennis stars. Cool.
