Danish pension fund looks to invest $100m in global equities
IPE QUEST - A Danish pension fund is looking to place a $100m (€75m) global equity mandate, using IPE Quest.
Mandate QN1158, being tendered by Kirstein Finans on behalf of the scheme, is looking to invest between $70m and $100m through a fundamental stock-selection process, with the goal of outperforming the MSCI World index.
The tender adds: "It is important performance not be created through big periodically and advantageous small-cap and/or emerging markets allocations compared with the chosen benchmark."
The scheme says that no growth strategies will be considered, while a core-orientated investment style should be implemented, occasionally using value tilts.
Additionally, only actively managed, long-only products will be considered, with index and enhanced index products, as well as all multi-manager products, automatically disqualified from selection.
Any products should have at least three years' performance figure, but preferably a five-year track record, and they should outperform the MSCI World index by 3%, with allowances made for tracking error.
Based on quantitative and qualitative analysis, as well as a due diligence,
the manager selection will result in the selection of one manager, following a successful application that includes performance data until the end of November.
Any questions regarding the mandate should be addressed to Martin Nielsen of Kirstein Finans, while applications must be made via IPE Quest by 31 January.
