Swiss pension fund seeks passive managers for domestic, global equities
A Swiss pension fund is seeking managers for allocations to domestic and global developed market equities, via IPE Quest.
The investor plans to allocate $100m (€88.2m) to the developed market equities mandate and CHF100m (€88.1m) to the Swiss equities mandate.
According to search QN-2510, the pension fund is interested in allocating to an all-cap or large-cap passive global equities manager.
The benchmark for the global mandate is the MSCI World ex Switzerland index.
For the Swiss tender – which is also for a passive manager – search QN-2509 states the benchmark as the SPI index.
In both cases, managers pitching for the business should have at least $750m under management in the strategy and at least $1bn under management across the firm.
Managers should have a track record of at least four years, but the investor said it would prefer those with at least a 10-year record.
The maximum tracking error is 4% for both mandates. Performance should be stated gross of fees to 31 January 2019.
The deadline for submissions for both mandates is 5pm UK time on 14 February.
