Insurer seeks ‘evergreen’ private equity, infra funds via IPE Quest [updated]

A Swiss consultant has turned to IPE Quest in its search for private equity and infrastructure managers on behalf of an insurance company.

Two mandates – each worth $40m – (€35.9m) are up for grabs, according to searches QN-2560 (private equity) and QN-2561 (infrastructure).

The insurer is looking for an “evergreen” fund for each of the mandates and in both cases the manager can invest globally.  

For the infrastructure mandate, the strategy can be pan-European, and can included both listed and unlisted assets.

A minimum track record of at least five years is preferred.

Asset managers should have at least $3bn in assets under management as a firm, and $1bn for infrastructure or $2bn for private equity. 

Applicants to either mandate should state performance net of fees to 30 June 2019. The deadline for applications for both mandates is 30 August at 5pm UK time.
