The Dubai request to delay interest payments on billions in debt servicing may be cause for investors to look for ties to current holdings.
Among the major financial firms with a hand in Dubai World's debt is Royal Bank of Scotland (see http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/ci_13880454).
RBS is a partner with Sempra Energy in the development of natural gas infrastructure projects while also managing a global logistical reach over a diverse basket of commodities (see http://www.rbssempra.com/). Sempra Energy is the corporate owner of San Diego utility franchise holder SDG&E.
