IPE-QUEST – An unidentified institutional investor based in Europe has tendered a $200m (€150.5m) European all/large-cap equity mandate using IPE-Quest.

According to search QN1328, asset managers are to take an active, fundamental, bottom-up approach to investment strategy.  

Although the mandate specifically calls for the MSCI Europe index as benchmark, the investor has set no tracking-error guidelines.

Asset managers should have at least $1bn in assets under management for the mandate itself and $2bn for the applying firm.

They should also have a track record of five years, although 10 would be preferable, according to the investor.

Interested parties should state performance, gross of fees, to the end of June.

The closing date for applications is 16 August.
