A Swiss pension fund wants to allocate $30m (€24.4m) to a China A-shares manager, according to a search on IPE Quest.

Discovery search DS-2424 says the investor wants an all-cap or large-cap focused fund.

The manager should have at least a two-year track record in the asset class. The strategy should be active and invested via a pooled fund.

The deadline for pitches is 4 April at 5pm UK time.

A-shares – which are listed in mainland China rather than Hong Kong or Singapore – have been growing in popularity in recent years, culminating in index provider MSCI’s decision to add them to its benchmarks.

MSCI launched 12 China A-shares indices last week.
