A Scandinavian pension fund is tendering a €100m global equity mandate, using IPE-Quest.

The fund behind search QN 1479, from an undisclosed Scandinavian country, said it would consider managers investing in global large and mid-cap equity products.

Actively managed, long-only products, excluding enhanced index funds, are possible vehicles for the mandate, as long as these are not minimum volatility funds.

Additionally, leveraged products or those employing derivatives will not be considered.

The pension fund added that it would appoint up to two managers it believed were capable of outperforming the MSCI All Country World Index, with capability assessed against a historical outperformance of 2-4% over a track record of five years or more.

Any shortlisted product must also be able to offer the fund segregated accounts that can cater to the pension investor’s requirement to blacklist certain companies.

Interested managers must apply by 27 January, stating performance to the end of December.
