The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Good morning, Singapore. Here’s some news to go with your (and my) morning coffee:

  • Mubadala was apparently part of the JV that paid $2.2 billion for EMI’s publishing division.
  • The China-Africa Development Fund has opened an office in Ghana.
  • UniSuper has hired former BlackRock head.
  • NBIM is investing $396 million in Paris real estate. I think this will bring the Norwegian SWF’s total real estate investments in the Ile de France region to $1 billion.
  • GIC bails out of Olympus: It sold its 2.17% stake at first sign of wrongdoing. Probably smart.
  • AIMCo (finally) receives Viterra board seat.
  • The Alaska’s Permanent Fund — which tends to abhor social investing — may actually implement an Iran divestment policy.
  • This is cool: Mubadala is looking to the Republic of Guinea for investment opportunities.
  • The Dutch pension APG has slammed Europe’s planned ‘financial transaction tax’. Says it will be the ‘man on the street’ that ends up for for it.
