NETHERLANDS – A Dutch pension fund has tendered two debt mandates worth a total 190 million euros via IPE-Quest.
The first is a 95 million-euro emerging market brief benchmarked against the J P Morgan Emerging Markets Bond Index Plus.
The second is a global high yield debt mandate of the same size, benchmarked to the Merrill Lynch Global High Yield.
Short selling, leverage and derivatives are not to be employed – with securities lending only permissible if explicitly approved.
There are no restrictions on track record or amount of assets under management. The performance of the portfolios will be reported on monthly, quarterly and annually.
The closing date for both is January 15.
