IPE Quest: German fund seeks TAA and debt
GERMANY - A German fiduciary manager is tendering two European tactical asset allocation (TAA) and fixed income investment mandates on behalf of a German pension fund (CTA), using IPE Quest.
Details of QN863 reveal a German CTA is seeking a eurozone TAA manager to manage $50m (€35m) in assets as a subfund of a German master-KAG, which will be benchmarked to the MSCI World TR or Lehman Euro Aggregate indices.
Tracking error is 1-8%, and interested firms must have a minimum track record of three years, although five years is preferred, along with a minimum of $1bn in assets under management (AUM) for the mandate and $10bn in AUM as a firm.
Performance data must be gross of fees and deadline for tenders is October 10.

Performance should be gross of fees while minimum track record is again three years with five years preferred and minimum AUM is $1bn for the mandate and $10bn for the firm.
Deadline for submissions is October 10.
