China Investment Corporation…the next winner is…York Capital
China Investment Corporation (CIC), the Chinese sovereign wealth fund, currently manages around $300bn and has been on accelerated path in learning about investing in hedge funds for the last three years. A source close to the CIC suggests that they are about to make their next commitment to a specific hedge fund. The story of China Investment Corporation’s interest in alternatives can be traced back to the purchase of a USD 3 billion stake in alternative investment company Blackstone during its IPO in mid-2007. A predecessor entity to the then unformed CIC negotiated a non-voting stake with a four year lock-up. On day one ... market research, surveys and trends
Addressing weak output growth
Governments are torn between fiscal austerity and stimulating economic growth. Since credit driven growth ceased in 2008 private sector economic growth has been muted. Consumption has been hampered by the need to restore household balance sheets. Such restoration is likely to overshoot as the lessons of 2008 linger, so savings rates are likely to be higher than expected. Corporate investment is likely to be less robust as well as managers risk management is highly autocorrelated and corporates are likely to retain a high buffer of cash on their balance sheets. This leaves exports as the driver of growth. Not every country can be ... market research, surveys and trends

Convertible bonds were first issued in the United States in the nineteenth century. A simple convertible bond is a relatively straightforward security. It is simply a regular corporate bond, paying a fixed coupon, with security, maturing at a certain date with an additional feature allowing it to be converted into a fixed number of the issuer’s common stock. According to Calamos (2003) this convertible clause was first added to fixed income investments to increase the attractiveness of investing in rail roads of what was then the emerging economy of the United States. Convertible bonds have grown in complexity and are now issued ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
China As A Leading Indicator
The Chinese equity market was one of the first to recover after the global equity-market collapse in October 2007, having bottomed a full four months before the rest of the world. The Shanghai Composite Index then peaked in August 2009, while other markets continued to race away. With the U.S. and other developed markets hitting post-crunch highs in April, once again it looks like the Chinese market has been leading the rest of the world. Right? Well, maybe not, according to Michael Pettis at Beijing University. That’s because China’s equity market is unlike those in the developed world, he argued in a recent ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Today on MoneyWatch
There’s a price war raging among exchange-traded funds, and no matter who wins, your portfolio can benefit. In recent months Fidelity , Vanguard, and Charles Schwab have eliminated commissions on some or all of their own funds, which removes a key obstacle for investors. Schwab recently upped the ante by lowering the expense ratio on six ETFs. The commissions you once had to pay to buy or sell these low-cost, tax-efficient funds have long been the prime downside to ETFs, especially for investors investing regularly in small amounts. Now with these three big brokerages offering free trades on dozens of ETFs, that drawback ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Looking for feed back as to whether warrant arbitrage as described ...
Pure arbitrage still occaisonally exists for warrants but I have only seen it/ participated recently outside of the US. Princton Newport Partners (Thorpes old shop) did a number of documented of variations of option/warrant arb. Citadel's recruiting brouchure from 1997 included an nice article about Thorp's arbs and was active at that time in Japan convert erb.. Some of the arbs that may still exist or did (like the Nikkei put warrant arbs) would involve non-fungible securities and would presumebaly converage at a later date. Longstaff and Liu have a nice paper on the risks of this type of relative value arbitrage.
