Benelux fund tenders for €250m Asian equities manager via IPE Quest

A pension fund in the Benelux region is seeking a manager for a €250m Asia Pacific equities mandate using IPE Quest.

Search QN-2426 is for an all-cap or large-cap core equities fund, to be benchmarked against the MSCI Asia Pacific index.

The strategy should include Japanese equities, the investor stated. It is willing to consider “either fundamental or systematic approaches”.

Managers bidding for the mandate should state performance to 31 December 2017, net of fees.

The minimum track record requested by the pension fund is five years, but it said it would prefer at least a seven-year year record.

The mandate has a minimum tracking error of 2% and maximum of 6%.

The investor wants managers running at least €2bn in the strategy already, and with at least €5bn under management across all strategies.

Managers interested in the mandate should apply via IPE Quest by 5pm UK time on 13 April.
