French scheme tenders €60m fixed income mandate using IPE Quest

Related Categories

A French pension fund is seeking a manager for a €60m fixed income mandate, using IPE Quest.

The pension fund behind search QN2091 said it aimed to invest €60m in global, developed-market, inflation-linked bonds.

It said the core, actively managed strategy would be benchmarked against the Barclays Global Inflation-Linked Bond index, with a maximum tracking error of 5%.

The fund said it would prefer for the assets to be held in a UCITS fund, fully hedged into euros, with no less than a 10% exposure to non-investment-grade assets.


Applicants should have at least €500m in assets in similar mandates, and €1bn in assets under management across the company.

Asset managers should also have at least a five-year track record.

Applicants have until 5 August to submit proposals, stating performance net of fees to the end of June.
