The Daily Brief

Ashby Monk

In today’s news:

  • China’s Vice Foreign Minister Fu Ying: “The argument that China should rescue Europe does not stand.”
  • GIC is apparently selling down some of its private equity interests on the secondary market.
  • Where to stash your money in a time of unrest and volatility? Bulgaria, Colombia, Libya, Mozambique, and Sri Lanka. Seriously.
  • Pension backing is increasingly crucial for the success of offshore wind farms.
  • NYC pensions: 5 boards, 15 consultants, 58 trustees, and 362 asset managers –> totally dysfunctional.  Time for change.
  • Interesting article in defense of high salaries at Harvard Management Company. Key take away: Don’t hate the players, hate the game.
  • AIMCo wins aiCIO SWF innovation award. CalSTRS wins for Public Pensions. Congrats!
