SWEDEN - Sweden’s Premium Pension Authority, PPM, is seeking a consultant for, among other things, performance evaluation of its external asset managers.

“The Premium Pension Authority (PPM) intends to purchase five general agreements for financial consultation services,” said Ulrica Hilmersson of PPM’s fund and finance department.

The procurement is divided between five service areas.

These include: an ALM and interactive allocation decision tool, support during procurement and implementation of external asset managers, socially responsible investments, debt management and performance evaluation of external asset managers.

Hilmersson said a single supplier may be engaged for several service areas and that PPM will engage up to three suppliers per service area.

The full scope of the procurement and PPM's requirements would be available on PPM's website, ppm.nu.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is July 14.

Last month IPE reported that the PPM was extending its trade processing time amid a surge in the number of funds being switched by investors.
