For the state employees who run them of course:
Swiss prosecutors on Friday requested assistance from Malaysian authorities in investigating massive theft from a state-owned firm at the centre of a graft scandal.
Swiss investigators said they believed around US$4bn had been stolen from Malaysian state-owned companies, funding that was earmarked for economic and social development projects in Malaysia.
That’s following on from the news that the $600 million which popped up in the Prime Minister’s accounts were in fact a gift from people in the Gulf.
State backed investment funds, just such a good idea.
