These include the optically selected quasar population from SDSS DR7 (Shen et al. 2011), sub-millimetre bright quasars from Coppin et al. (2008) and Orellana et al. (2011) and a subset of sub-millimetre galaxies hosting AGN that were selected from X-ray studies (Alexander et al. 2008).

The submillimetre quasars in Orellana et al. (2011) are all optically bright blue quasars whereas those in Coppin et al. (2008) include both standard blue optical quasars as well as redder X-ray absorbed quasars and quasars detected in blank-field sub-millimetre surveys.

Fig. 9 shows that our sample of reddened quasars constitute some of the most massive AGN at z ∼2 with black-hole masses comparable to the quasars studied by Coppin et al. (2008) and Orellana et al. (2011) and an order of magnitude larger than SMGs hosting AGN at similar redshifts.
