A Swiss pension fund is seeking to allocate up to $100m (€88.8m) to a “transitional real estate debt” strategy, via IPE Quest.

According to search QN-2544, the unnamed investor wants to allocate $50m-$100m to a North America-focused mandate.

The search criteria states: “We are looking for a manager who is specialised in directly originating loans for transitional properties of various degrees – eg renovation, expansion, change of use business plans – including bridge lending.”

Managers bidding for the mandate must have at least $500m under management in this strategy already.

The investor would prefer a track record of at least five years. Performance must be stated gross of fees to 31 March 2019.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm UK time on 17 June.
