The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Your morning news:

  • This just in: The CIC will be split into two new companies. (Maybe)
  • SWFs are apparently driving private equity fees down. Gasp. PE shops may be forced to charge fees that are somehow related to actual management costs!
  • Texas Teachers is moving 6% of assets into the hands of KKR and Apollo.
  • Jin Liqun explains why the CIC will NOT bail out europe. Basically he says ‘We’re commercial and financial. And we’re not crazy.’
  • Bill Gates is still pushing sovereign funds to help overcome infrastructure deficits in developing economies.
  • Alaska tries to understand how Norway got a $600 billion SWF.
  • Sweden’s AP6 will apparently refocus towards venture investments in later stage companies.
