An undisclosed corporate pension fund in Germany has tendered a €100m (€80.4m) US investment-grade corporate bond mandate using IPE-Quest.

The mandate calls for the benchmark to be the BofA Merrill Lynch 10+ Year AAA-A US Corporate Index, EUR hedged (Bloomberg Ticker: C910 Index).

Fund managers must have an absolute minimum track record of six years – the preferred minimum track record is six years.

They should also have at least $1bn in assets under management (AUM) for the mandate itself.

Interested parties should state performance, gross of fees, until the end of September.

The closing date for applications is 9 December.
