Danske Capital has used IPE-Quest to conduct a search for an additional emerging market equity manager for its investment platform.

According to search QN1348, the $200m (€145m) mandate calls for a minimum track record of three years, preferably five.

The mandate will be measured against MSCI Emerging Markets index, and the applicant’s track record must be for a standalone emerging market equity product (no carve outs allowed).

Danske said it would also prefer a manager with a “proven track record” and a skilled investment team that has ”worked together for a long period of time within this specific asset class”.

Otherwise, it has no minimum assets-under-management requirements, while tracking error guidelines are to be confirmed at a later date.

Danske said the product would be launched within a UCITS setup available for sale in all Nordic countries, and the portfolio will be set up as a segregated account and sub-advised mandate.

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

The closing date for applications is 20 November.
