A pension fund is tendering a €20m private debt mandate, using IPE Quest.

The unnamed pension fund behind search QN-2163 asked a consultant based in the Netherlands to find an asset manager able to invest in European private debt.

The actively managed mandate would see performance benchmarked against the Euribor interest rate, and should have a tracking error ranging between 3% and 8%.

The mandate, to be held in a pooled fund, could invest wholly in European private debt, but it would be allowed to allocate up to 40% to debt outside Europe.

The consultancy said it was looking for asset managers with existing Dutch institutional clients.

Interested managers should have at least €1bn in similar private debt mandates, and at least €5bn in total assets under management.

They should also have a minimum track record of three years, preferably five years.

Requests for proposals should be submitted by 15 March, stating net-of-fees performance to the end of 2015.
