    Asset Management: China cosies up to private equity

    One scoop to start: Richard Buxtonis leavingJupiter Fund Management after a nearly four-decade career at City institutions that made him one of the UK’s best-known asset managers.

Private equity firms EQT, Global Infrastructure Partners and BC Partners — the immediate owners, respectively, of the three businesses — are just three among dozens of western buyout groups that Chinese state-backed investors such as the State Administration of Foreign Assets and China Investment Corporation have poured money into, according to people familiar with their affairs and an analysis of regulatory filings.

    Stock market today: Asian stocks follow Wall St up after strong US jobs report

    Asian stocks followed Wall Street higher on Monday after strong U.S. hiring data coupled with scant wage gains suggested a possible recession might be further away, but also that inflationary pressures are weakening. Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul also rose. Wall Street's benchmark S&P 500 index leaped 1.5% on Friday, putting it on the verge of entering what traders call a “bull market” after rising nearly 20% in seven months.

    Asia stocks follow Wall Street higher as oil prices rise

    Asian equities broadly followed Wall Street higher on hopes of US economic resilience, while oil futures climbed after Saudi Arabia announced production cuts in an attempt to shore up crude prices. The gains for Asia-Pacific stocks came after a rally on Wall Street on Friday that saw the S&P 500 rise 1.5 per cent and the tech-focused Nasdaq Composite climb 1.1 per cent after US jobs data showed new hires increased more than expected in May. In commodities markets, crude briefly spiked after Saudi Arabia said it would cut oil production by 1mn barrels a day in a bid to prop up prices.

    Shares stroll higher on June hike hiatus hopes

    Shares rose and the dollar firmed on Monday as investors bet the Federal Reserve would pause its rate hikes this month after a mostly encouraging U.S. jobs report, while oil prices jumped after Saudi Arabia pledged big output cuts. The dollar also firmed against major peers after data on Friday showed payrolls in the public and private sector far outstripping forecasts, while wage pressures eased and the unemployment rate climbed off a 53-year low. That in turn stoked hopes the Fed could pause its program of rate hikes at the June 13-14 meeting, albeit likely resuming in July.
