Swiss investor hunts for private equity manager via IPE Quest

A Swiss pension fund is seeking to allocate up to $10m (€8.9m) to private equity, according to a new search on IPE Quest.

Search QN-2558 is for a $5m-$10m private equity mandate, either global or focused on Swiss companies. The unnamed investor wants a growth-oriented style manager, but not a fund-of-funds.

The pension fund has not specified a minimum level of assets, but has stated that managers should have at track record of at least three years.

Performance should be stated net of fees to 31 July 2019.

The investor has expressed a preference for a bottom-up approach and an “evergreen” structure.

The deadline for submissions is 20 August 2019 at 5pm UK time.

Two other IPE Quest searches are still open for submissions, with deadlines this week.

A “large” but otherwise unidentified Swiss pension fund is looking to allocate CHF200m (€89m), with potential for further growth, to global real estate equity via unlisted funds (search QN-2554, deadline 7 August).

Another Swiss pension investor is on the hunt for an FX hedging mandate of around CHF1.5bn (search QN-2556, deadline 9 August).

The IPE news team is unable to answer any further questions about IPE Quest, Discovery, or Innovation 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
