A pension fund based in Belgium and a Scandinavian insurance company are each looking for infrastructure managers via IPE Quest’s Discovery service.

According to Discovery search DS-2373, the pension fund wants to invest via an unlisted pooled fund, with an allocation that could be for between €10-15m.

The mandate would be for infrastructure equity only.

The pension fund is targeting returns of between 7.5% and 10%.

It has some flexibility as to the geographic spread of investments. It specified that the mandate would be pan-European, but indicated it would accept OECD countries as the asset region if the main focus were on Europe (more than 50%).

Interested parties should have a track record of at least five years and register their interest by 13 November.

Meanwhile, the Scandinavia-based insurance company is looking to allocate up to €200m to infrastructure in global developed markets, via a pooled fund.

It anticipates placing a mandate in March next year.

The closing dead for the insurer’s DS-2371 search is 7 November.
