An undisclosed European institutional investor has tendered a €100m long-term global equity mandate using IPE Quest.

The client is seeking a fundamental long-term investment style, stressing that the approach should be “truly” long term, whereby the asset manager has a “deep knowledge of the companies invested in and has a long-term view, low turnover and active engagement with the management of the companies invested in”.

The mandate is for €100m.

According to search QN-2149, applicants should have at least €500m in total assets under management and €500m in long-term equities.

Performance is to be measured against the MSCI World, although the client does not have maximum or minimum tracking-error expectations.

Applicants should state performance to 31 December, gross of fees.

Interested parties should have at least a three-year track record, although five years is preferred.

The deadline for applications is 5 February.

IPE Quest’s latest mandate takes to nearly €1bn the total tendered through the service since the beginning of the new year, split across five mandates.

Two recent searches were for US-dollar bond mandates – global emerging markets and government bonds, separately – while another two were for Asian small-cap equities
