The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

I’m at a conference in Quebec that starts at 7am (literally), so this is all I can muster today: The news:

  • The Qatar Investment Authority is worried about European protectionism against SWFs.
  • And, after you read that QIA article about EU protectionism against SWFs, read this one that shows the EU leaders cheer leading SWF investments in Europe. (Which is it?)
  • IPIC’s crushes its first semester. Profits triple. Revenues up 17%.
  • Nigeria puts $1 billion in new SWF and rating agencies respond with upgrade. Coincidence? No.
  • This New York Times graphic showing the geography of a financial crisis is kinda awesome.
  • Qatari Diar has half a billion dollars worth of deals going in Egypt.
  • I wonder what actually went down at this meeting in Nigeria.
