Alternative assets are so hot right now. Whether it be venture capital, private equity, real estate, hedge funds, art, jewellery, infrastructure, classic cars or music royalties, pension funds have never been more exposed to this cohort of financial assets. Very low rates have prompted institutional investors like insurance companies, pension funds, and asset managers to reach for yield and take on riskier and less liquid securities to generate targeted returns.

Microsoft had five routes when it launched the Connector shuttle program to bring its headquarters employees to work in 2007. Sitting in the front row of one of a Connector bus, John Trujillo said the shuttle service has grown to be the second-most popular way employees get to work, after driving alone. In 12 years it’s expanded to 23 routes spanning from Kent to Lake Stevens, with the highest demand in Seattle and particularly in Capitol Hill, which houses a growing cohort of Microsoft employees.

(Bloomberg) -- Insignia Ventures Partners, a Singapore-based firm founded by a former venture partner of Sequoia Capital, has closed its second Southeast Asian fund at $200 million.The new fund underscores growing interest in Southeast Asia’s startup scene. A number of VC firms, including Temasek Holdings Pte.’s Vertex Ventures and Vulcan Capital, the investment house of late Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen, have launched funds focused on the region this year.“We are doubling down on early-stage technology in Southeast Asia,” Insignia Founding Managing Partner Yinglan Tan said in an interview. “There is more smart capital and top talent flowing into the region that spur the formation of great companies.”Tan said Insignia can distinguish itself through a hands-on approach with portfolio companies. The firm supports founders in several ways, including providing Insignia’s in-house technology for hiring and fundraising, he said.Insignia’s portfolio companies include car marketplace Carro, bill payments startup Payfazz, logistics service provider Janio, Indonesian fund-transfer platform Flip and Logivan, a Vietnamese logistics startup.Tan, Sequoia Capital’s first employee in Southeast Asia, launched Insignia Ventures’ first, $120 million fund in late 2017.To contact the reporter on this story: Yoolim Lee in Singapore at yoolim@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at pelstrom@bloomberg.net, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- International Business Machines Corp. reported third-quarter revenue that missed Wall Street estimates, with the long-awaited revenue infusion from Red Hat failing to compensate for continued declines in other parts of its business.Total revenue was $18 billion in the three months ended Sept. 30, down 3.9% from a year earlier, the Armonk, New York-based company said in a statement Wednesday. Analysts had forecast $18.2 billion. It marked the fifth consecutive quarter of shrinking sales at IBM, while analysts had been looking for signs that Red Hat, which was incorporated for the first time in these results, would change the narrative.In July, IBM completed the purchase of the open-source software provider for $34 billion – sealing the world’s second-largest technology deal. Adjusted revenue from Red Hat was $371 million in the third quarter, better than the $350 million IBM told investors it was expecting in August. Red Hat was folded into IBM’s cloud and cognitive software unit, which pulled in $5.3 billion in revenue, up 6.4% from a year earlier.Still, IBM’s overall sales declined due to divestitures from commerce software businesses, foreign currency effects and poor performance in one of its key units. Revenue from Global Technology Services, the company’s infrastructure and tech support unit, fell 5.6% to $6.7 billion. Global Business Services revenue, which includes IBM’s consulting arm, increased only 1% to $4.1 billion. The shares fell 3.2% in extended trading. They had gained 25% this year through the close of trading Wednesday.“The one thing IBM doesn’t need is a disappointing quarter,” Ian Campbell, CEO of Boston-based Nucleus Research, said in an interview before the results were released. “There have been so many quarters that have shown a downward trend in revenue. This quarter we need to see some change as IBM has fallen to the point where they have no name recognition.”Chief Executive Officer Ginni Rometty is pegging IBM’s future to a hybrid cloud strategy by using Red Hat to offer enhanced security services on private and multiple public clouds. IBM hopes this new plan will allow it to partner with top cloud rivals like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Corp.’s Azure, rather than being left behind in a trillion-dollar market where it’s been seeking growth for a decade.Analysts and investors might have to wait a little longer to see any real uptick in revenue growth from Red Hat. Chief Financial Officer Jim Kavanaugh said in an interview that IBM will be back to a sustained level of revenue growth in 2020.Earnings excluding some costs were $2.68 a share, largely in line with the average analyst projection of $2.67. IBM reiterated it sees full-year adjusted operating profit of $12.80 a share.
