IPE-QUEST – An undisclosed investor has tendered a $30m (€22.5m) CTA/managed futures mandate for both its Swiss and UK pension funds, using IPE-Quest.

According to search QN1330, asset managers are expected to outperform LIBOR by at least 4%.

Applicants are to have at least $250m in assets under management (AUM) for the mandate itself.

Because the investor is looking for a "non-benchmark orientated" manager, no tracking-error guidelines will apply.

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

They should also state performance, net of fees, to the end of June.

The closing date for applications is 20 August.

In a separate IPE-Quest search, QN1331, the same investor tenders a $30m global tactical asset allocation mandate.

All other specifications – including performance target, AUM requirements and track record – are the same as for search QN1330.

The closing date for this mandate is also 20 August.
