The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Your daily brief:

  • The G20 has endorsed a new technology platform (called Sokoni) that will facilitate investing in African infrastructure projects. The idea is to connect opportunities with the capital providers. Very cool.
  • Citigroup wins in arbitration with ADIA over the latter’s $7.5 billion investment in the former.
  • 285 institutional investors have called for an “investment-grade international policy on climate change.”
  • Alaska Permanent Fund Corp. took a $3 billion hit in Q1, which is a little over 7%. That’s actually a lot better than it’s peers thus far.
  • APG’s CIO can’t bet against the Euro, but it’s not because she doesn’t want to.
