The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

And now, the news:

  • Oil exports from GCC countries could generate $608 billion in income for 2011, which is $143 billion more than in 2010. Much of this will wind up in SWF coffers.
  • Temasek is putting close to a billion dollars into a building project in the western Chinese city of Chongqing.
  • Samruk-Kazyna is hoping that it can save Kazakhstan’s third largest bank, BTA. The former now owns over 80% of the latter.
  • Fitch has affirmed Mubadala’s AA rating.
  • And, in the spirit of healthy competition, the SWF Initiative at Tufts and Fletcher has a new SWF Bulletin they’ll be doing every month. It looks quite interesting. So check it out.
