Pension fund tenders €60m equity mandate via IPE Quest
A pension fund subject to Dutch law is searching for an investment manager to run a €60m all/large-cap equities mandate, according to a search on IPE Quest.
The search has a deadline of 23 October at 5pm, just one week from today.
The pension fund is located in Europe, the search shows, though additional information supplied shows managers responding will have to comply with Dutch law.
The mandate is for global developed-market equities.
The pension fund specifies that there should be no exposure to emerging markets.
It also has a preference for managers with experience with institutional clients based in the Netherlands.
The assets are to be managed actively, with a core style, and the benchmark for the mandate is to be the MSCI World Index.
Applicants should have at least €750m in assets under management (AUM) for this asset class and a minimum of €7.5bn in AUM overall.
Performance should be stated gross of fees to the end of September.
A strict requirement for responding asset managers, according to the details of the Quest, is compliance with regulatory reporting and solvency (VEV) calculations as demanded by the Dutch Central Bank (DNB) under the new financial assessment framework (nFTK), which went into force at the beginning of 2015.
