IPE-QUEST – Institutional investors are currently conducting more than $1.5bn (€1.2bn) in manager searches using IPE-Quest.

Increased tender activity from institutional investors – including a number of tenders conducted on behalf of investors based in Asia – have seen the 13 active searches peak above $1.5bn.

Investors are looking to allocate to US small-cap equity mandates and European sovereign debt, as well as alternative asset classes such as infrastructure and managed futures.

Institutions have tendered in three of the four global currencies, seeking exposure to Continental European, UK, Asia-Pacific and US investment opportunities.

In addition to the $100m search for unlisted core infrastructure, managers will also be able to submit applications for a $40m listed real estate securities portfolio and the opportunity to manage as much as $200m in Singaporean debt for an institution.

Open searches currently see institutions looking to invest more than $700m in fixed income, $500m in equity and a further $130m in absolute return and global tactical asset allocation strategies.

Interested parties have until this evening to apply for two £50m (€58m) European sovereign debt mandates, but they will be able to apply for some of the remaining searches, including a €100m developed Pacific equities portfolio, until 31 August.

The IPE.com news team is unable to answer any further questions about IPE-Quest 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 jayna.vishram@ipe-quest.com.
