  • In the past five years, private equity firms have put $50 billion to work in India.
  • Korea’s SWF lost 3.3% in 2011. While the KIC is one of the first to report bad earnings, it surely won’t be the last.

  • Medicine Hat wants its own sovereign fund. (FYI: Medicine Hat is a city in Alberta.)
  • The hedge fund industry may be doing a lot worse than we thought.
