European company seeks DC ideas via new IPE Quest Innovation service

A European company is seeking investment ideas for a defined contribution (DC) pension scheme via a new service from IPE Quest.

IPE Quest Innovation enables investors to request proposals from asset managers when looking for new investment ideas or innovative solutions to their investment problems or queries, without requiring it to be within a traditional asset class.

Innovation can also be used to request advice on technical or other issues within a portfolio.

The service is free for investors and asset managers.

The first request, IN-2318, involves an internationally renowned company seeking suggestions for investing the assets of a newly formed DC plan.   

Based in Luxembourg, the scheme will start with an intake of at least 10 members a year, with salaries well within market range and an expected accrual of €110,000 a year.  

The investor is searching for the best management platform from an asset manager or insurer, and would be particularly interested to hear about any innovative ideas for the investment of these assets.

The DC plan will be launched later in 2017. For more information, please log in to IPE Quest.

The IPE news team is unable to answer any further questions about IPE Quest or Innovation tender notices to protect the interests of clients conducting the search. To obtain information directly from IPE Quest, please contact Jayna Vishram on +44 (0) 20 3465 9330 or email
