The Daily Brief

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

Here now, the news:

  • MassPRIM is divesting from all its portfolio companies with dealings in or ties to Iran’s energy industry.
  • If you’re in agriculture, you’ll want to pay attention to what’s happening in Qatar. Seriously.
  • The Washington State Investment Board continues to expand its PE portfolio. Did you know the WSIB has almost 35% of its assets in alternatives?
  • I was interested to learn that CalSTRS has a new ‘innovation group’ and has been dabbling in such things as micro-finance. Cool.
  • Central Huijin will apparently leave the CIC and find its new home within the MoF.
  • Here’s a nice post on Sokoni — the digital infrastructure platform for Africa.
  • Pension funds are doing more in US infrastructure.
  • And in sporting news: Paris Saint Germaine has spent more than $100 million on players since the Qataris took over.
