NETHERLANDS – A Dutch pension fund has tendered a mandate for up to 70 million euros in global emerging markets equities via IPE-Quest.

The mandate is for 35-70 million euros in actively managed emerging markets equities. The preferred benchmark is the MSCI EMF and there must be at least a five-year track record.

The client has expressed a preference for defensive managers with outperformance in down-markets. A pooled vehicle would be preferred.
