An undisclosed insurance company based in Europe has tendered a $50m (€47.2m) global green bond mandate using IPE Quest.

According to search QN-2138, the client is seeking “high-level ESG analysis”, with a bottom-up focus.

It is also aiming to invest through a pooled vehicle.

Applicants for the active mandate should have at least $100m in assets under management (AUM) in the asset class itself and $10bn in AUM as a company.

Although fund managers should measure performance against the Green Bond Index, there is no minimum or maximum expected level of tracking error.
