Benelux investor tenders large-cap equity mandate using IPE Quest

An undisclosed pension fund based in the Benelux region has tendered a €100m all/large-cap equity mandate using IPE Quest.

According to QN-2125, the client is looking for a portfolio managed with a “truly long-term” investment horizon, where “conviction is expressed in a limited number of holdings analysed through fundamental research”.

The investor expects “extremely low” turnover and a focus on absolute returns as a result.

A sustainability research element is also favourable.


Given the long-term nature of the mandate, a benchmark should be used for reference only; in that case, the MSCI Europe Index would be most suitable.

The client prefers asset managers with a minimum track record of at least three years.

Interested parties should state performance, net of fees, to the end of September.

The deadline for applications is 3 November.
