ON BOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) – The White House on Friday appeared to play down the possibility of changing U. S. policy on exporting natural gas to address the situation in Ukraine.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Air Force One that policy changes would not have an immediate effect and noted that natural gas stocks in Europe were above normal levels because of a mild winter.
“There is no indication currently that there’s much risk of a natural gas shortage in the region,” he said.
Europe and Ukraine are key export markets for natural gas from Russia, which has historically shut down pipelines as a pressure tactic.

BOSTON (Reuters) – After years of complaining about high fees and lackluster returns, hedge fund investors have something new to grumble about: It is getting harder to see even the most basic data about what’s happening with their money.
Big-name hedge funds like Third Point Capital, Paulson & Co, Pershing Square Capital Management, and Eton Park Capital Management have made it tougher for investors to see fund performance, using complex password-protected websites and putting in settings that forbid things like printing, forwarding, and copying and pasting.
The shift comes as hedge fund managers increasingly seek to shield their big bets and inner workings from rivals.
But for investors in hedge funds, including investors who write reports to their own clients, the restrictions are a pain that eats up valuable time navigating the multilayered sites and then retyping the data that they eventually find.
“I’m giving them money to invest, and they are making it nearly impossible for me to see what they did with it,” complained one fund of funds manager who allocates billions to hedge funds.
