The Daily Brief

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

Mmmmm. Friday. Here’s some news:

  • Here’s a nice update on Sub-Saharan Africa’s various new SWFs. (Spoiler: Nigeria and Ghana are pressing ahead. Angola is floundering. South Sudan is considering. Namibia, Mozambique, Uganda and Tanzania showing potential.)
  • The Qatar Investment Authority’s senior M&A banker will likely be seconded from a major western bank (again).
  • CalPERS is doing another big direct infrastructure deal. Good work.
  • This story about ADIA employees not wanting to dance at a party is a sign that ADIA needs to start throwing local journalists a few more real stories they can write about.
  • Nigeria is hoping to begin naming its senior SWF leadership in January.
