The US Navy guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain conducted a freedom-of-navigation mission that challenged Russia's excessive maritime claims in the Sea of Japan. Russia accused the US of violating its territory and claimed that the destroyer Admiral Vinogradov warned the American vessel and threatened to ram it. The Russian defense ministry said that the US warship violated its maritime borders by sailing through Russian territorial waters and that the Russian destroyer Admiral Vinogradov was sent to drive the American ship away. Russia claims that after the warning was issued, the Admiral Vinogradov changed course, and the McCain returned to international waters. McCain conducted this FONOP in accordance with international law and continued to conduct normal operations in international waters."

BlackRock Inc. has agreed to acquire equity-index provider Aperio Group LLC from private-equity firm Golden Gate Capital and Aperio employees in a $1.05 billion all-cash deal, as the company looks to add more personalization to its wealth management offerings. BlackRock, one of the leading providers of separately managed accounts—professionally managed portfolios created for a single client rather than managed as a fund for many investors—for U.S. wealth managers, said the combination will help increase its SMA assets by about 30% to over $160 billion. The world’s largest money manager—with $7.8 trillion in assets—said it intends to operate Aperio as a separate brand, but it will be fully embedded within BlackRock’s U.S. Aperio’s Chief Investment Officer Ran Leshem and Liz Michaels, its chief of staff, will become co-heads of Aperio following the deal, and will retain its investment, business development, client service and ESG processes, the company said. Aperio’s Chief Executive Officer Patrick Geddes will stay in his role as the company’s chief tax economist and will become a senior adviser at BlackRock.
