Global Credit – PGSC11
Global Credit – Assisted Search PGSC11
Deadline: Thursday 25th June
A UK pension scheme is running an assisted search for a global credit manager for their DB scheme. In the long term, they are looking for a manager to run either a segregated credit portfolio against the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Corporate index (hedged to GBP) but may be interested in accessing the strategy via a Pooled Fund with the same/similar benchmark initially. The manager is expected to be open to in-specie transactions to Pooled Fund, and Pooled Fund to Segregated account.
All applicants will be required to complete additional information in an excel sheet that Natasha Fletcher will send to you when you apply to her with your fund name; this is in addition to our standard CAMRADATA database entry requirements. This is due to the requirements for this search being very specific.
This part of the search refers to the possible pooled solution you may have.
If you would like to put a vehicle, or a number of vehicles, forward for this search then you must contact me with the name of the vehicle that you would like to propose and I will then send you the spreadsheet to fill in. All funds being proposed must be listed in CAMRADATA Live and returns must be up to date i.e. to 31st March 2020.
