DENMARK – A Danish pension fund has tendered two Japanese equities mandates for a total €75m+ via IPE-Quest.

The first (QN616) is for €50m+ in Japanese large-Cap or all-cap active core equities, preferably benchmark against MSCI Japan. The brief calls for a tracking error of 4-10%. There’s no minimum assets under management and a three-year minimum track record is needed (five years preferred).

Next (QN617) is €25m+ in Japanese small-cap or small/mid-cap active equities. The key criteria are: open benchmark; style: core - no style tilt; tracking error: 4-10%; no minimum AUM; three-year minimum track record.

The closing date for both is April 20.
