Airplane Reading

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

I’m on planes for the better part of two days, as I’m making my way to the other side of the planet. That means I’ll have plenty of time to catch up on my reading. And, so, here are two papers I loaded on my tablet for some ‘in-flight infotainment’:

First, Brad M. Barber and Guojun Wang have a new paper entitled “Do (Some) University Endowments Earn Alpha?” It looks like the answer is ‘Yes’ but it’s almost all due to the asset allocation. Should be interesting.

Second, Eiichi Sekine has a paper out entitled “Moves by China to Improve How It Manages Its Foreign Exchange Reserves.” This looks like one of a number of papers offering details on China’s SWFs. Even if repetitive, there’s usually some interesting nuggets of info.

Anyway, away I go…
