IPE-QUEST – An unnamed Asian institutional investor has tendered a $20m (€15m) private real estate and private infrastructure equity mandate, using IPE-Quest.

According to search QN1311 previously set to conclude at the end of June and at the time limited to private equity investments – managers are asked to propose opportunities in the Asia Pacific region, including Australia.

The investor will still consider core, value-add, opportunistic, specific sector or diversified sector styles on the actively managed mandate.

No benchmark was set for the search.

However, the investor will now consider candidates with mandate-specific assets under management (AUM) of as little as $200m – down from the minimum threshold of $500m, which remains as the higher end of the range.

Similarly, managers with a firm-wide AUM of $300m will now also been considered – the previous threshold stood at $1bn.

Managers should nonetheless have a five-year track record on any strategies, and submit their gross of fees performance to the end of June.

The closing date for the search has been extended to 26 July.
