The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Caveat Lector: Today’s news was compiled while severely jet lagged:

  • AIMCo buys 50% of a Chilean utility. It will co-own the facility with Ontario Teachers’ (which invested in 2008).
  • Saudi Arabia’s Sanabil al-Saudia has apparently just hired some new private equity big shot.
  • NBIM reacts to the EFSF with confusion.
  • Bumi has completed its loan prepayment to CIC.
  • CalPERS has apparently negotiated more than $100 million in fee reductions with hedge fund managers over the past few years.
  • The Qatar Investment Authority is buying Washington DC real estate at a fast clip.
  • The China Africa Development Fund is looking for new investors. Any takers?
  • Mubadala will soon open a luxury resort in the Maldives. (Note to self: Must write funding application for project examining said resort’s development impact…with fieldwork)
