The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) is looking to extend the product suite linked to its recently launched Vix futures in order to avoid the issue of low liquidity which has dogged other attempts by Asian exchanges to kick-start similar domestic markets. The launch of a futures contract based on the S&P/ASX 200 Vix index on October 21 is the third such product launch by an Asia exchange in the past year, following similar moves by the Osaka and Hong Kong exchanges in 2012.

Yields for the world's five largest sovereign bond issuers have become so depressed relative to the potential default risk that investors are receiving ‘return-less risk', according to Tung Siew Hoong, managing director and head of fixed income at Singaporean sovereign wealth fund GIC. Speaking on a panel discussion at Central Banking's National Asset Liability Management conference in Singapore this week, Tung questioned the general perception that sovereign paper was a risk-free investment.

The ethical investment of Norway's government pension funds is a "hot topic" in Norway, which can be "consistent with earning good returns", but there is no empirical evidence that it makes economic sense, according to Thomas Ekeli, chief economist of the domestically invested pension fund, Government Pension Fund Norway (GPFN). During a presentation to the National Asset Liability Management conference in Singapore yesterday, Ekeli emphasised the importance of ethically-focused investment – typ
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
