A pension fund based in Germany has tendered a €20m smart-beta equity mandate using IPE Quest.
According to search QN-2125, interested parties should have at least €250m in assets under management in the asset class.
The mandate is to cover Europe excluding the UK and adopt the MSCI Europe Multi-Factor or similar index as a benchmark, observing a maximum tracking record of 10%.
The pension fund said it was creating a long-list of managers, and that a manager might therefore not be appointed.
Interested parties should state performance, net of fees, to the end of September and have a track record of at least three years (preferably five).
The deadline for applications is 30 October.
