Dutch fund to pick external managers

Fund managers competing for Dfl750m ($395m) worth of the Netherlands' industry-wide pension fund for health insurers, the Stichting Bedrijfspensioenfonds voor de Zorgverzekeraars in Zeist, are being interviewed this month and an appointment will be made after easter.

A short-list of three managers has been drawn up. One is Dutch and the other two international," says Peter van Gemet of Capital Management Consultants in Vreeland, who is responsible for the search. He says that the fund will invest in "equities this year and bonds next year".

The fund totals Dfl2.5bn ($1.3bn), of which Dfl750m is to be outsourced during the next three years and for which international equity and fixed-income mandates have been up for grabs. Some 11% of the overall fund will be outsourced and the remainder managed internally as before.

Thus far, management of the fund's international equities has been in the hands of Robeco Asset Management in Rotterdam, ABN-Amro and Holland Investment Group in Amsterdam, Deutscher Investment Trust in Germany and Schroder in London."
