The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

Your daily dose:

  • The Kuwait Investment Authority’s Bader Al Saad is apparently very keen on big (>£200mil) deals in UK real estate and infrastructure.
  • CalSTRS gets two new financially savvy board members.
  • The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is in the mix for the Yahoo! bid.
  • OECD’s Fiona Stewart opines on how “long-term investors” can become long-term investors.
  • Good governance can boost pension fund returns. However, there can, apparently, be too much of a good thing.
  • Mumtalakat is celebrating Bahrain Woman Day. Interestingly, women represent 41% of the sovereign fund’s staff and 15% of its senior managers. That’s quite respectable in this male-dominated industry.
