A Scandinavian investor is tendering a €50m global “cross-asset, systematic trend following” mandate via IPE Quest.

The investor requires a UCITS fund and has a minimum volatility target of 10%.

According to search QN-2324, interested parties should have at least €10bn of assets under management, and €1bn for this particular asset class or approach.

Applicants should state performance to 31 March, gross of fees. The deadline is 16 June. 

A Dutch pension fund, meanwhile, is researching managers and strategies for emerging market debt (EMD) and government bond mandates via IPE Quest’s Discovery service.

The emerging market debt mandate is for a €50m allocation, while the global government bond mandate will receive €20m.

For the EMD allocation (IPE Quest reference DS-2323), the pension fund wants an actively managed, investment grade bond strategy. Managers pitching their ideas should have a track record of at least five years.

The global government bond option (IPE Quest reference DS-2322) should be a passive strategy, the pension fund said. It should also be investment grade only, and offered through a pooled fund.

The deadline for both searches is 7 June.
