An undisclosed institutional investor in Switzerland has tendered a CHF100m (€96m) Swiss equity mandate using IPE Quest.

According to search QN-2082, “knowledge and experience with the Swiss institutional funds and/or institutional clients is an advantage”.

The investor calls for a “clear, active style”, able to adapt to market conditions.

Small and mid-cap-focused mandates will not be considered.

The mandate calls for a minimum track record of five years.

The investor expects an annual outperformance of 2-3% per annum, gross of fees.

Tracking error should range between 2% and 6%, using the SPI Index.

Fund managers should have a minimum of CHF1bn in assets under management in Swiss equities “across the different funds/mandates”.

Interested parties should state performance, gross of fees, to the end of March.
