Sovereign Wealth Funds have been around for decades, but were not seen as a serious player in the global economy until 2005 when the US Federal Reserve, who were worried about the growing US budget deficit, made it clear they would not tolerate sovereign wealth funds buying up US assets This was seen as an attempt to protect the US economy and the US Dollar from the China threat€ Shortly thereafter, the US Congress passed the Foreign Investment and National Security Act of 2007, and China announced that they would no longer buy US assets https://www.govinfo.gov/app/details/PLAW-110publ49 With the US out of the picture, Chinese investors started to look elsewhere in the world for opportunities In 2007, the Chinese government created a sovereign wealth fund called the China Investment Corporation, and the next year it was announced that the CIC would be buying 10% of Blackstone Group, a US private equity firm The CIC's investment in Blackstone was seen as an investment in the US, and it was also seen as a way to get around the foreign ownership restrictions in China, and to invest in companies in China that were listed on the NYSE and other international stock exchanges In 2009, the CIC invested $3 billion in Morgan Stanley, and $5 billion in the Blackstone Group, valuing the two companies at $37 5 billion and $37 billion, respectively The CIC's Canadian investments have not always fared well. The fund bought a 17.2 percent stake in Canadian miner Teck Resources Ltd TCKb.TO in July 2009 for C$1.74 billion (£836.5 million). That stake has lost 72 percent of its value and is now worth C$492.3 million currently. CIC's bets on a string of other Canadian resource companies including Penn West Petroleum Ltd PWT.TO, SouthGobi Resources Ltd SGQ.TO and Sunshine Oilsands 2012.HK have also soured. https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-cn-invst-new-york/exclusive-chinas-sovereign-wealth-fund-to-open-first-u-s-office-sources-idUKKBN0TX22320151214 Cic bought a 9 percent stake in Thames water https://www.bbc.com/news/business-16643989.amp I At the height of the financial crisis the CIC invested $5.8 billion in Morgan Stanley.

Our local market closed slightly lower yesterday, down 0.2% or 15 points to 6,508, despite the rebound we saw over on Wall Street. The market was mixed. The utilities sector pushed 2.1% higher, supported by gains in APA Group (ASX:APA). Energy stocks also rallied, like Woodside Energy (ASX:WDS), Beach Energy (ASX:BPT) and Santos (ASX:STO). Meanwhile tech and consumer discretionary stocks led the losses came under pressure. The best performing stock was Coronado Global Resources (ASX:CRN), which managed to add 7.5% - despite its slump on Tuesday, after the Queensland government announced that there would be increased royalties on coal sales. Also performing well was Ampol (ASX:ALD) following Morgan Stanley retaining its overweight rating and lifting its price target to $39. On the flip side, the worst performers included St Barbara (ASX:SBM), Core Lithium (ASX:CXO) and Lake Resources (ASX:LKE), all down over 13%. Also, Crown Resorts (ASX:CWN) announced news that it had received regulatory approval to start its gaming operations at the Crown Sydney casino, but as the stock is no longer listed on the Aussie market as of last week, following its approval to be taking over by US firm Blackstone, the market couldn't react.The most traded stocks by Bell Direct clients yesterday was Stanmore Resources (ASX:SMR), Lake Resources (ASX:LKE), Amcor (ASX:AMC) and Seven West Media (ASX:SWM).In the US, all three benchmarks closed slightly lower, in a choppy session as markets struggled to sustain a rebound from earlier in the day. What to watch today:If you go by the SPI futures, our local market is set to open 0.36% higher. Economic news wise, S&P Global Manufacturing and Services Flash PMI for June will be released. This is a forward-looking estimate of the Purchasing Manager's Index, exemplifying economic trends in the manufacturing and services sectors.In commodities:Oil prices came under pressure as investors worry that rate hikes by the US Fed could push the US economy into a recession, therefore dampening demand for fuel. The gold price pushed higher given these renewed fears of a recession – therefore boosting the safe-haven's appeal. The spot iron ore price is currently trading at US$117 a tonne, that's down 20% from its previous highs in early June. So keep watch of iron ore miners like BHP Group (ASX:BHP) and Fortescue Metals (ASX:FMG). Leo Lithium will be debuting on the ASX today. It will be trading under the ticker code LLL.Trading Ideas:Citi have maintained its Buy rating on BHP Group (ASX:BHP) with a price target of $50. At BHP's current share price of $41.03, this implies 22% share price growth in a year. Trading Central has a bearish signal on Aurizon Holdings (ASX:AZJ) indicating that the stock price may fall from the close of $3.75 to the range of $3.33 - $3.41 in the next 28 days according to standard principals of technical analysis.

Yesterday our local market extended its losses, falling 1.3% or 85 points to close at 6,601. This comes as investors digested rising interest rate forecasts and an increase to the minimum wage. We also got an update on consumer confidence for June, which fell 4.5% month-over-month, back to levels seen at the beginning of the pandemic. Now confidence was weighed down by surging prices and expectations of further interest rate hikes.Losses were seen across the board, with all 11 industry sectors in the red. The tech sector was down the most, as it's quite sensitive to interest rates, due to their high price to earnings ratios and low dividend payments.The best performer yesterday was medical device company PolyNovo (ASX:PNV) despite no announcements out from the company. However, insider buying action amongst its senior managers has likely propped up its share price and overall sentiment. Other top performers included Lynas Rare Earths (ASX:LYC), Suncorp (ASX:SUN) and Computershare (ASX:CPU). Meanwhile, the worst performers included tech companies like NOVONIX (ASX:NVX), Megaport (ASX:MP1) and Block (ASX:SQ2). And the most traded stocks by Bell Direct clients were ANZ (ASX:ANZ), Insignia Financial (ASX:IFL) and Lake Resources (ASX:LKE).In the US, as was widely expected, the US Federal Reserve lifted rates by 75 basis points, the biggest increase made in almost 30 years. Stocks rallied, as Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell noted that a 50 or 75 basis point increase “seems most likely” at its next meeting in July, highlighting the central bank's commitment to fighting inflation. So, we saw all three benchmarks push higher, with the Nasdaq up the most, rising 2.5%.What to watch today:Following the US market's positive session, our local market is set for a positive day, with the SPI futures suggesting a lift of 0.4% at the open.Economic news wise, the latest jobs figures will be released today, with the May unemployment rate expected to remain steady on forecasts of a small gain in jobs across the economy. Keep an eye on Coronado Global (ASX:CRN) – its share price might see a lift today after news that the coal miner has been added to the ASX200 index, replacing Crown Resorts (ASX:CWN), which has been delisted following Blackstone's takeover.In commodities:Oil prices tumbled over 2% amid concerns that rising interest rates would impact demand. The WTI crude oil pride now trades at around US$116 a barrel.Gold prices retreated from their highs of the day after the rate hike. Now remember, although gold is considered a hedge against inflation, rate hikes increase the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion.The spot iron ore price is trading 0.7% lower at US$136 a tonne.If you hold medical device company ResMed (ASX:RMD) you will receive your dividend payment today.Trading Ideas:Bell Potter have maintained its Buy rating on hardware company, Coventry Group (ASX:CYG) with a reduced price target from $2.00 to $1.70. Bell Potter sees Coventry as a business that is fast approaching an inflexion point in recovery, with market share in Australia being recouped at pace and, importantly, little cost to gross margin. Now, at its current share price of $1.20, this implies about 42% share price growth in a year.Trading Central has a bearish signal on Duxton Farms (ASX:DBF) indicating that the stock price may fall from the close of $1.68 to the range of $1.40 - $1.46 in the next 111 days according to standard principals of technical analysis.

In this episode of the Hotel Design Podcast, we welcome Staci Patton, Principal & Hospitality Interior Design Director of DLR Group.  This show was captured during the NEWH Leadership Conference in Seattle.   Host Glenn Haussman has Staci start by explaining that DLR Group is a multidisciplinary design firm.  Staci leads the hospitality studio, a boutique group within a larger organization, overseeing 60 people within the locations of Minneapolis, Chicago, and Kansas City. The projects that the team works on are varied, and include lifestyle and luxury boutique work.    Staci says it is essential for boutique and lifestyle design is all about story telling. Without that, a hotel lacks an identity. Though it is easier to find a story through adaptive reuse buildings, even if a hotel is a new build, a smart story must be crafted to serve as a project's design throughline.  For focused brand hotels, stories can be told through the local environment. Her diligent focus on storytelling derives from her original career goal, journalism, and she shares how she discovered her true calling for design.     The first project discussed is the AC Scottsdale North. Staci and her team have worked on over 35 different AC Hotel designs. Part of the Marriott brand family, this property brand stands out for its classic European modernism design.  The goal for all AC Hotels is that no AC Hotel looks the same due to the customized hyperlocal influences that are used as compliments to each hotel's design. In AC Scottsdale North, that translates to striking designs that are carried throughout the space to mirror the vertical lines of cacti found throughout Phoenix.   Next, Glenn and Staci discuss the distinctions between classic style verses trends and how the design dialogue has morphed through the ages. Staci also shares insights on creating dynamic communal outdoor spaces. AC Scottsdale North's pool and lounge are shown as examples, which have biophilic elements such as fire, waterfalls, and plants incorporated into them.   The next project is the Catbird Hotel, a Sage Hospitality property located in Denver's RiNo Art District. Partnering with branding company OMFGCO, the concept blurs the distinction between hotel and home. Distinctly eclectic, the design uses colors strategically throughout it.  Spaces also need to be highly functional, as the property is designed for stays upwards of a month or more. The teams therefore created a loft-like space with expanded kitchenettes and an expanded social living zone.   The Cottonwood Hotel, in Omaha is the next property examined.  Formerly called the Blackstone, the property was historically a stopping space for people traveling from New York to the West when it first opened in 1916. The project started with a gutted hotel, so the team visited the nearby Durham Museum and worked historical Western elements into the common areas of the building's design. This Kimpton property leveraged the power of a historic building as a base from which to build a story. Meanwhile, the guest rooms have a very light and minimalist feel to help guests feel serene and relaxed.   The final project brings us to Iowa for a look at the Surety Hotel, which the owners call a “modern grand hotel ushering an exciting new era in downtown Des Moines.” Another historic space, this hotel is a modern homage to the former bank & offices that were in the building's original intent. The Perry Hotel Group embraced elements such as mosaic tile, then paired it with modern Midwest inspiration. Staci shares advice that was given to her from one of her mentors when she started her career, and also shares an encouraging message for any new designers. Follow along with some great project visuals on our website - http://hoteldesignpodcast.com/ - and subscribe to our new Youtube page to watch the video interview!

In this episode, my friend John Tamny interviews me about legendary Wall Street leader and Blackstone founder Stephen Schwarzman's book What It Takes: Lessons in the Pursuit of Excellence. There are many fascinating insights and lessons in Steve's book which we can all benefit from.  A few highlights: Steve Schwarzman started Blackstone with a unique strategic plan.  There's a tremendous lesson in how he approached building his firm.  For any young man or woman who wants to build a business, or any type of organization, Steve Schwarzman's book would be a great place to start learning about “what it takes.” When Steve Schwarzman tells his team “don't lose money” it's about a mindset. Think through the downsides, what Jay Pritzker called “the horribles.” Both, in part, became billionaires from thinking this way. One of my favorite Steve Schwarzman Rules: “Worrying is an active, liberating activity. If channeled appropriately, it allows you to articulate the downside in any situation and drives you to take action to avoid it." Great advice. Private equity's been demonized by a lot of people with agendas and who know nothing about it. True, it's a competitive and tough business, but it's created a lot of value over the past 4-5 decades. Look at the record. Do companies become woke because their young woke new hires demand it? Disney employees clearly seem to be running the asylum, not its CEO. Is this also true for Wall Street? One of ways our culture has changed, and not for the better, it that we seem to have lost the ideal of pursing excellence. In my private equity experience, making an investment successful was exhilarating. Under President Xi, China's becoming “uninvestable” for Western businesses. Even Chinese private equity investors say China's turned hostile to capitalism. No longer simply a competitor, China's turned enemy.  In “What It Takes” Steve Schwarzman writes that had we not had FAS 157 mark-to-market accounting, the meltdown we had in 2008 would not have happened. I agree.  One history's great ironies is that Dodd-Frank, the bill to supposedly cure the ills of the 2008 meltdown, is named after Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, who pushed banks to drop their underwriting standards to promote housing. When you're running an investment company there's a real tension between the roles of CEO and CIO (chief investment officer). It's a balancing act you must get right to succeed. John Tamny is Vice President of Freedom Works and editor of Real Clear Markets, and author of the terrific book, When Politicians Panicked, which is about the government mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic. John's other books includeWho Needs the Fed, Popular Economics and The End of Work.           He asks some tough, penetrating questions and we hope you'll find the answers illuminating. Steve's book holds many many stories and lessons about “what it takes” to be both a leader and investor.            Hope you'll listen in.

Davos might have missed some big names and even bigger countries this time, but India went with the aim of making a mark.   “Attendance from China, Japan and Korea was sparse this year and of course we heard nothing from Russia or much from Ukraine attendees” – This is what Gautam Adani, Chairman of Adani Group, wrote about his experience at Davos 2022. Even as the world's rich and powerful descended on Davos, the sentiment at World Economic Forum's annual meeting wasn't the same as before. Consider the conspicuous absence of many titans of finance.   According to Bloomberg, the chiefs of JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs were not in attendance. Neither was BlackRock Inc's Larry Fink or Blackstone's Steve Schwarzman.  Meanwhile, nearly 100 participants and dozens of political leaders from India attended the World Economic Forum, and presented the country's position on the energy situation, food security and health equity at Davos. And, India's enthusiasm was well-founded. Here's what Business Standard reported from Davos.   India found itself at the centre of many dialogues on emerging issues, ranging from climate change to crypto technologies. European business leaders were eagerly scouting options for diversifying trade and investments. India appeared to be the best option for most of them, thanks to its political stability and reformist policies.   Many global investors endorsed India's rising economic relevance. For example, Saint Gobain Global CEO Benoit Bazin said that the company plans to invest over Rs 5,500 crore in the next four years in India. Bazin was bullish about the 45-billion-Euro company's growth story in India.    David Rubenstein, co-founder of the private equity Carlyle Group, told reporters in Davos that “India has been more attractive [to buy assets] of late than China.” Clearly, India benefitted from the absence of China and concerns over its heavy-handed ‘zero Covid' strategy.     Speaking from Davos, Pranjal Sharma of Business Standard says India is presenting itself as a stable, dynamic and growing emerging market at Davos. This is in contrast to the troubles in Europe and the US due to the ongoing Ukraine war. The idea is to attract investors worried by the uncertainty in markets and rising inflation, he says. State govts and the Centre aligned in their goals of presenting Brand India aggressively at Davos, Sharma says.  Ministers from several state governments, including those of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, were also in Davos to attract global investors. Andhra Pradesh reportedly signed renewables investment pacts cumulatively worth about 1600-crore rupees with three companies. The investment commitments were made with India's Adani Green Energy, GIC-backed Greenko and India's Aurobindo Realty & Infrastructure.  The Maharashtra delegation reportedly signed at least 23 MoUs worth 30,000 crore rupees. Of these investments, more than 55 per cent are by way of FDI from the US, Singapore, Indonesia and Japan. The team led by Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai inked MoUs with two major companies for a total investment flow of 52,000 crore rupees. India also took its vibrant start-up story, already featuring daily in the domestic news, to the world stage. Consider the fact that along with several legacy leaders the Indian delegation also included unicorn founders such as Zerodha's Nikhil Kamath, EaseMyTrip's Prashant Pitti, Ashish Singhal of Coinswitch, and Vidit Atrey of Meesho. With the government proudly referring to the rise of unicorns in India, the founders were pleasantly surprised by the attention they were getting from delegates from India and abroad.    Pranjal Sharma of Business Standard speaks to Prashant Pitti, Co-founder of Easemytrip.   India also adopted a strategy at Davos that was significantly different from previous years – the Indian delegation was focused on improving

Football, Air Force Academy, and business; hear how they come together in this Stanford MBA's journey [Show Summary] Captain David Harris has been a leader since childhood. Growing up and in college, he played football. After graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy, he served as an officer in the U.S. Space Force, and now he's preparing for an MBA at Stanford GSB. In this episode, he shares his story.  Interview with David Harris, US Air Force veteran, Stanford GSB MBA candidate [Show Notes] Thanks for joining me for the 471st episode of Admissions Straight Talk. You've seen the stats that most people have a great return on their MBA investment, but what about you? Are you going to see that return? We've created a tool that will help you assess whether the MBA is likely to be a good investment for you individually.

And it's all free. hbspt.cta.load(58291, 'c02bd076-c5e2-45e6-b09d-9c5e3065ccd6', {"useNewLoader":"true","region":"na1"}); I'd like to welcome to Admissions Straight Talk, Captain David Harris of the U.S. Space Force. I first met David when he won a free consultation after attending an Accepted webinar. I was very impressed with him and here's why: In addition to being a delightful person to speak with, David graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2017. While there, he was a football team captain for the Academy's Division I team. Upon graduating, he worked first as a Nuclear Cruise Missile Manufacturing and Production Program Manager for the U.S. Air Force and is currently serving in the United States Space Force's National Reconnaissance Office. Parallel to his service in the military, David has pursued internships in private equity and venture capital, participated in Management Leadership for Tomorrow's Professional Development Fellows' program, and co-founded his own investment management company, Ikon Capital Group.  Can you tell us a little bit about your background? [2:38] No problem. I'm David Harris. Originally from Dallas, Texas so a Cowboys fan by law. I was actually born during a Cowboys game and that kind of laid the framework for my early pursuits. I played football growing up and that ultimately opened the door for football scholarships at the Air Force Academy, which I chose for the leadership and academic challenge. I majored in management and played football, as you mentioned, and then graduated. That's where I caught the bug for finance. I was really interested once I got into my major, specifically the finance course to dive a little deeper into private equity. So I got an internship at Pharos Capital down in Dallas before I went into active duty at the Nuclear Cruise Missile Program Office, where I was working for three years. It was a great opportunity to lead with decent size team of up to 30. I got the real challenge when I went to the National Reconnaissance Office leading a team of about 125 and managing $250 million worth of software development satellites. It was definitely an amazing experience. I tell people all the time I had the luckiest military career of all time. Then from there, I was able to do a venture capital internship before I head to GSB where I'll be looking to go into private equity post-MBA. And a quick update, I'm headed to Blackstone at the beginning of June for a pre-MBA internship. So you have three parallel paths: football, Air Force Academy, and business. What do you like to do for fun? [4:19] I'll give you two things. One, I really love volunteering with the Riordan Programs from UCLA. I've really enjoyed helping out the youth in southern California. That's been a big passion of mine for the past four years. I'm actually flying out next week to go to the Riordan Gala where we'll be presenting a few awards. Outside of that, really, I really enjoy cooking.

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Leadership consultant and executive coach, Steven Van Cohen, MSOD, connected with the What's Next! Podcast to discuss his thoughts on workplace loneliness. Along with Ryan Jenkins, he is a co-author of the book Connectable: How Leaders Can Move Teams From Isolated to All In which gives insight on how to create meaningful connections within an organization. Dubbed “The Leadership Whisperer,” he's spent more than a decade working alongside leading organizations like Salesforce, Home Depot, Komatsu, Bank of America, CAT, and Blackstone to improve worker well-being, reduce employee isolation and boost team belonging.  Steven is a co-founder of LessLonely.com, the premier resource for addressing workplace loneliness and CEO of SyncLX, a leading consultancy specializing in employee development.  As a proud Big Brother, (from Big Brothers and Big Sisters), as well as a volunteer with Boys & Girls Club and Young Americans, Steven has helped build confidence in the future leaders of America.  He holds a BA from the University of Illinois and a MSOD from Pepperdine University. He lives in Orange County CA with his wife and two daughters.   THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  workers who are seeking validation and understanding in the loneliness of their workplace environment and managers who are striving to create a more connected workforce to inspire, engage, and properly appreciate their employees.   TODAY'S MAIN MESSAGE… While managing the emotional state of employees might not directly exist on a team leader's job description, the fact is that disengaged and lonely employees are less productive and more susceptible to burnout. We must find the balance between caring about people and getting stuff done if we want to succeed as a healthy workplace.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… The business case for caring about employee loneliness is clear: workers who feel seen and heard perform better for your team. Building workplace connections is in your best interest because it inspires people to come to work as the best versions of themselves – everyone wins.     Running time: 30:37 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Steven online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Steven's Book: Connectable: How Leaders Can Move Teams from Isolated to All In

Goldman Sachs: Fortune Favors the Old - [Business Breakdowns, EP. 58]

This is Matt Reustle and today we are breaking down the 150 year-old investment bank – Goldman Sachs. From the outside, investment banks like Goldman are black boxes of profits and the embodiment of “Wall Street”. But as with most things, the reality sits somewhere between the polarizing designations. Goldman is neither a vampire squid nor are they doing God's work.   To break down Goldman, I am joined by longtime financials analyst Marc Rubinstein. For loyal listeners, you will remember Marc from our popular episode on Blackstone. For those who haven't listened, I think you'll enjoy that one in tandem with this.    Having personally worked at Goldman for a decade it was great to go through the inner workings of a bank with Marc. We cover what it means to sit at the center of the capital system – and the various ways a bank facilitates risk management and risk transfer. We cover the DNA of bank profitability as we go through the core segments of a bank: asset management, sales & trading, and investment banking. And we talk about culture – the mystery and the prestige that has followed Goldman since its days as a private partnership. I learned a ton through this conversation, and I think you will too. Please enjoy this breakdown of Goldman Sachs.   For the full show notes, transcript, and links to the best content to learn more, check out the episode page here.   -----   This episode is brought to you by Tegus.

The U.S. has a long history of resettling refugees who are fleeing war and persecution. The current program goes back to the ’80s, after the Vietnam War. Today, as the Joe Biden administration prepares to welcome 100,000 refugees from Ukraine, we’re wondering what happens to an economy when refugees become part of it. On the show today: the costs associated with refugee resettlement along with the  contributions refugees make to our economy and why arguments about their being a drag on the labor force are overblown. In the News Fix, we’ll talk about why investment firm Blackstone is betting on student housing, even after a couple of years of remote learning. Plus, the story behind right-wing social media account Libs of TikTok. And later, a rooster makes a cameo on the show (see if you can spot it), and Kai and Amy give a listener career advice.
