A European pension fund is seeking managers for a €400m allocation to emerging markets, through two searches on IPE Quest.

In search QN-2316, the investor has requested a core active manager to run a €200m emerging market equity allocation.

In search QN-2317, the pension fund requested a quant manager to run a similar mandate.

Both mandates are to be benchmarked against the MSCI Emerging Markets index.

Managers bidding for the allocations should have at least €3bn already under management in the asset class, and at least €10bn under management overall. They must have at least a five-year track record.

Performance should be stated gross of fees to 31 March 2017.

The pension fund will accept a maximum tracking error of 6% for each allocation.

The closing date for proposals is 31 May.
