The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Some interesting news out today:

  • NZSF is defending its responsible investment policies after revelations of an exposure to a West Papuan mine.
  • The China Development Bank is starting to look and feel a lot like a SWF.
  • TIAA-CREF spent half a million dollars on lobbyists in single quarter. Is this normal behavior for a pension fund?
  • Investors are increasingly interested in Africa. (Me too.)
  • CIC has signed up to a new JV with Blackstone and Greentown Property to build retirement and holiday homes in China.
  • Japanese pensions are finally trying to break their home bias.
