Ashby Monk

Your daily dose of SWF news:

  • The NZSF has ‘been actively taking advantage of pricing’ by ‘taking on board more risk rather than stepping away.’
  • The China Investment Corporation offers some details about its new Hong Kong office.
  • Todd Moss of the Center for Global Development looks at SWFs and the Resource Curse.
  • in 2012, SOFAZ will invest internationally in publicly traded shares, real estate and gold.
  • Bahrain launched a $265 million “food security fund“. The claim is that it will have commercial goals, but it’s pretty tough to do ‘security’ and ‘returns’ at the same time.
  • Suriname is planning a new SWF.
  • Khazanah’s Parkway Pantai is being positioned for a $2 billion IPO.
  • Some rather strong words by a Nigerian Governor about the country’s new SWF:  ‘Can a father refuse to spend his entire monthly salary if his child is ill?’
  • The IRS is proposing new tax rules for SWFs.
  • What’s China doing in Africa? Read this.
