IPE - A European industry-wide pension scheme has tendered two global emerging market (GEM) debt mandates - each worth as much as $100m (€69m) - using IPE Quest.
The mandate for QN1184 calls for hard currency, using the EMBI Global as a benchmark, while QN1185 targets local currency and recommends the GBI-EM Global index.
Otherwise, both mandates are fairly similar, focusing on core, active funds with a minimum track record of three years and stating performance to the end of April, net of fees.
The scheme said managers must have an excellent track record in both performance and risk management.
Interested parties have until 22 June to submit applications.
Meanwhile, Grontmij Capital Consultants (GCC) - an advisor to Dutch institutional investors - has tendered €180m worth of global real estate mandates on behalf of several Dutch pension funds.
Expected holdings will be €15-20m of equity per client, GCC said.
The consultancy said it was sourcing for a number of non-listed real estate funds for QN1186 with the following specialised profiles: European industrial, US industrial, European retail, US retail, hotels and the UK.
It added: "In order not to miss any chances, we would like to have an overview of the available accessible products in the market. We would therefore like to invite (applicants) to participate in this survey to provide us with information on their expertise by 20 June."
Based on the "accessible products", applicants will progress to a next stage to provide more detailed information on the funds for due diligence.
GCC said it expected to finish the selections for the profiles by the end of June. Deadline for applications is 19 June.
