A Swiss institutional investor has turned to IPE Quest in the search for a global private debt strategy for a CHF1bn (€900m) mandate. 

According to QN-2694, the investor is seeking to establish a fund of funds with an investment strategy focussed on direct lending.

This should include, but not be limited to, primary funds, secondary and co-investments. The portfolio can include a minority allocation to other/niche/opportunistic private debt strategies.

The expected net return in Swiss francs is 4-5%. The S&P Global Leveraged Loan Index is to serve as the benchmark. 

Applicants should have at least $1bn in assets under management for the asset class, and $5bn as a firm. Performance should be stated to 31 March 2021.

The deadline for applications is 25 June at 5pm UK time.
