IPE-Quest: Dutch fund seeks Euro equities
NETHERLANDS - A Dutch corporate pension fund is seeking a pan-European equities manager for a $70m-150m (€50m-105m) mandate, using IPE-Quest.
According to QN864, the pension fund is looking to hear from investment managers with a bottom-up pan-European equity strategy but is not interested in tenders from quants managers, who can provide an actively-managed large cap/all-stocks portfolio benchmarked to the MSCI Europe total return index.
Managers can be "benchmark agnostic", according to the pension fund, so minimum tracking error is 3% with no maximum but the firm must be managing minimum assets of $300m in pan-Euro equities and at least $500m in total AUM as a company but no more than $30bn in AUM.
Performance should be stated gross of fees along with a minimum track record of three, years, albeit five years is preferred.
Deadline for tender submissions is October 10.
