The mandate will mainly focus on equities and bonds.

The pension fund said Investec was chosen ahead of 16 other managers.

In other news, Bayerische Versorgungskammer (BVK), Germany’s largest public pension fund, has entered an agreement with Pantheon for a new global private equity investment strategy.
