An unnamed European institutional investor is looking for a manager for a $150m (€129m) global developed markets equity mandate via IPE Quest.

According to search QN-2474, the manager should have at least $1.5bn of assets under management for the asset class, and $10bn as a whole for the firm.

The investor is open to all management styles but has indicated a preference for a “systematic enhanced index” strategy.

The benchmark should be MSCI World. The investor has specified a minimum tracking error of 0.5% and a maximum of 2%.

Managers should have a track record of at least five years for the strategy. The investor said it would accept backtested performance data, but the strategy should still have a live track record of more than three years.

Interested parties have until 25 September to apply, and should state performance net of fees to 31 August of this year.
