A Swiss pension fund is searching for active and passive Swiss equity managers to run up to CHF650m (€591m), via IPE Quest.

Two searches – QN-2340 and QN-2341 – are for managers focused on Swiss small and mid-cap equity mandates.

QN-2340 is for an active manager, and is the smaller of the two mandates at CHF100m-CHF200m.

QN-2341 is for a passive manager, with the pension fund looking to allocate between CHF250m and CHF450m.

Both mandates will be benchmarked against the SPI Extra index. The active mandate should have a maximum tracking error of 8%.

Managers bidding for the mandates should state performance gross of fees to 30 June 2017, and have at least a three-year track record.

The pension fund wants segregated accounts in both cases.

Bids should be submitted by 5pm UK time on 31 July.
