The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

  • Doh! And here we thought Nigeria had resolved its internal questions over the legality of the new NSIA… Apparently 23 of Nigeria’s Governors have now raised this issue to the Supreme Court. (I just asked a smart friend to comment on this and will run his thoughts later this morning.)
  • Cheekyness du jour: French market regulator Jean-Pierre Jouyet is worried about SWFs’ demands should they come to save Europe.
  • Analysts think Timor Leste’s plan to have its SWF diversify into equities is “a risky move“. Yes. And that’s the idea. It’s a risk-return concept.
  • This news about a future CIC investment is pointless because news stories predicting future CIC investments are almost always wrong. But since it’s in the WSJ, I’ll include it.
