  • IPE Quest: UK manager seeks to invest in Asian, Japanese equities

IPE QUEST - A UK multi-manager is looking to place three multi-cap mandates of around $50m (€35m), targeting global and Asian equity generally, as well as Japanese equity.

The first mandate, QN1134, seeks a non-benchmark orientated manager to care for a $50m Japanese equity mandate, employing the Tokyo stock price index (Topix) as a benchmark.

Any applying company should have at least $50m in assets under management and have already won a similar mandate, with at least one year of trading experience, but ideally five years.

Additionally, the manager should employ a research-intensive, bottom-up stock-picking strategy, with multi-cap being the preferred approach.

The second mandate, QN1135, applies the same standards as above, but offers the manager a chance to invest more than $50m in the general Asian equity market.

Here, the equity universe may include Japan, but the country's presence is not mandatory.

MSCI Asia excluding Japan or the MSCI Asia including Japan should be applied as a benchmark, depending on the approach.

The final mandate, QN1136, again asks for a research-intensive manager to care for a global equity mandate worth more than $50m.

The company must have $50m in assets under management, applying either MSCI World TRR or the GDDUWI as a benchmark.

Unlike with the previous two searches, there is no restriction on the minimum mandate size.

All submissions should state their performance net of fees until 30 September of this year and apply by 19 November.
