An unnamed Asian institutional investor is on the lookout for an asset manager to take on a $125m (€101m) global emerging markets fixed-income mandate.

A search has been put out via IPE Quest on behalf of the investor, seeking discretionary management of a portfolio of actively-managed fixed-income securities.

Search QN-2422 specifies that the mandate will follow the JPM Corporate Emerging Market Bond index (CEMBI).

The portfolio is to have diversified exposure to instruments from global issuers including sovereigns, quasi-sovereigns and corporates.

Managers responding to the RFP should have at least $1bn under management in this asset class, and $3bn of total assets under management.

The final closing date for the search is 21 March at 5pm UK time.
