Nordic insurer seeks developed market bond manager via IPE Quest

Related Categories

A Nordic insurance company has launched a tender for a $50m (€44m) global developed markets fixed income mandate on IPE Quest.

According to QN-2498, the unit-linked insurer is looking to invest in investment grade bonds, and seeking active managers.

The focus, it said, should be on “bottom-up security selection with a macro overlay”.

The benchmark for the mandate is the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Corporate index.

Tracking error for the strategy should be between 0.5% and 2%. Asset managers should have at least $3bn in assets under management for the asset class, and $10bn as a firm. Ideally they would have a track record of at least seven years, but three years is the absolute minimum.

Interested parties should state performance gross of fees to 30 November. The deadline is 7 January at 5pm UK time.
