The Daily Brief

This blog is movingNot to worry: same blogger; same content; same price (free).

And now, the news:

  • PSG — the Qatar Investment Authority owned football club in Paris — has apparently signed David Beckham. He’ll make around $1 million per month for next 18 months.
  • CPPIB and Goodman Group are doubling down on Chinese logistics.
  • Harvard and Princeton grads are apparently turning their back on Goldman Sachs et al. In 2007, 47% of grads were heading to careers in finance and consulting. In 2011, that number shrunk to 22%. But is that a function of job demand or supply I wonder?
  • Kazakhstan’s SWF is seen as evidence the country is moving away from crony capitalism and implementing best practice resource revenue management.
  • OECD calls on Israel to set up a new SWF for looming hydrocarbon revenues. It’s already in the works.
  •  Where are infrastructure assets invested today? Here.
