GLOBAL – A European pension fund is seeking to appoint a manager able to oversee a $20m (€15m) Asia-Pacific real estate mandate, using IPE-Quest.

According to search QN1299, the fund said it would consider exposure to the entire Asia-Pacific region, including Australia, benchmarked against trade association ANREV's index.

The core property mandate should be actively managed, with $500m invested in a similar strategy and a total of $5bn in assets overseen by the applying manager.

The mandate's tracking error should not fall below 0.5% or exceed 5%, the fund said.

It added that it would consider companies with at least five years experience, but said it would prefer a track record of 10 years.

Interested parties have until 17 May to apply, stating performance net of fees to the end of March.
