Sovereign Wealth Funds Briefing 21.Dec 2015

The four-star Renaissance hotel in Raleigh, N.C., and the cluster of 75 residential apartments in east London called Fizzy Canning Town have little in common except that they share a landlord based in a Middle Eastern desert thousands of miles away.
That landlord—the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, or ADIA—has become one of the largest property owners in the world. Increasingly, its army of Persian Gulf-based deal makers is looking beyond the trophy properties that have attracted sovereign-wealth funds in the past to a broader range of cities and buildings………………………………………..Full Article: Source

A huge consortium including the sovereign wealth fund of Kuwait has been short-listed to bid for the airport. A mega-consortium of some of the world’s most powerful sovereign wealth and pension funds is among the leaders in the £2bn race to buy London City Airport.
A team made up of five suitors, including Wren House Infrastructure, which is an arm of the Kuwait Investment Authority, is believed to be on a shortlist of bidders that will be invited to make second-round offers for the airport in February. The group also includes Canadian funds Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP), Borealis Infrastructure, AIMCo and Hermes, the British investment manager………………………………………..Full Article: Source

Accel Partners has sold a fractional stake in Flipkart to Qatar Investment Authority for $100 million (about Rs 650 crore), in a deal that values India’s biggest online marketplace at $15 billion, according to two people aware of the transaction. Accel, the first venture investor in Flipkart, remains the second-largest shareholder in the ecommerce company behind New York-based hedge fund Tiger Global Management.
The venture firm’s latest transaction is its most significant involving Flipkart since selling the ecommerce company’s shares worth more than $80 million to undisclosed buyers last year. “The (Accel-QIA) deal closed in November,” one person said. “Given that valuation numbers are expected to stabilise, this is the right time to book returns.” Both the sources declined to be identified………………………………………..Full Article: Source

Chinese sovereign wealth fund China Investment Corporation (CIC) [CIC.UL] is eyeing investments in Europe’s biggest economy, its chief investment officer has told a German business paper. “We are looking at a variety of objects,” Li Keping, who also serves as CIC’s vice chairman and president, told Handelsblatt in an interview, excerpts of which were published on Sunday.
He said the fund, which manages about $750 billion of China’s foreign exchange reserves, was particularly interested in firms involved in ‘Industrie 4.0′, a German government initiative backed by lobby groups in engineering, electronics and high-tech to address issues such as worker skills, data transfer standards and data security………………………………………..Full Article: Source

The year in Malaysia started with the debt struggles of state investment firm 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) and how it got into the mess in the first place. And the same questions remain as the year draws to a close.
The 1MDB, which is owned by the Finance Ministry, was set up by Prime Minister Najib Razak in 2009 and he heads its board of advisers. In July, Datuk Seri Najib was confronted with another scandal when some US$680 million (S$961 million) in cash was discovered in his bank accounts by investigators probing 1MDB. The Malaysian government says it is working hard to erase 1MDB’s debts………………………………………..Full Article: Source

Most of 1MDB’s power assets were acquired within a 16-month time frame between March 2012 and July 2013. The spending spree raised many questions at the time, which remain unsatisfactorily unanswered as at writing time. The underlying logic of buying over independent power producers (IPPs), as understood by market observers, would likely be the strong cash flow.
In simple terms, IPPs have a steady stream of cash flow by virtue of their power purchase agreements (PPAs), which are iron-clad agreements that guarantee a steady stream of money in exchange for a steady level of power generation as stipulated in the agreement………………………………………..Full Article: Source

When it was first set up as Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA) in early 2009, 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) set out to drive strategic development of national interests. After it was taken over by the federal government by mid-2009, however, the meaning of ‘strategic’ seems to have taken an Arabic flavour.
The company’s board of advisers, for starters, count two prominent Middle Easterners as advisers - former Qatar prime minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani as special adviser while adviser Khaldoon Khalifa Al Mubarak is CEO of Mubadala Development Co, an investment company owned by the Abu Dhabi emirate in the United Arab Emirates………………………………………..Full Article: Source
