NETHERLANDS – A Dutch pension fund has tendered a global emerging markets debt mandate worth up to $100m (€82m) via IPE-Quest.

The brief (QN570) says the objective of the portfolio is to attain a rate of total return that exceeds that of the benchmark index by active management, while adhering to the fund’s restrictions.

The duration of the portfolio may not exceed a given deviation from the duration of the benchmark index. Techniques like short selling and leverage are prohibited, while securities lending is only permissible if explicitly approved by the client.

The closing date is February 15.
