IPE-QUEST: Swiss corporate seeks asset manager
SWITZERLAND - Investment consultant Kieger is looking for an asset manager for an actively managed short duration portfolio, on behalf of a corporate client.
The ideal candidate should provide an enhanced return over cash through an appropriate yield curve, currency or credit management, maintaining a strong emphasis on capital preservation and liquidity.
The result should be a constant out-performance of the three-month USD Libor rate.
The use of derivatives is allowed only for interest rate, credit or currency risk hedging, and leverage is not permitted.
A minimum track record of three years is expected but there is no minimum for assets under management.
The portfolio’s performance is to be reported on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis, producing the relevant information within eight business days after close of a month, quarter or calendar year.
Deadline for application is August 31.
