UK - The Allied Worldwide Pension Scheme has appointed Attica Asset Management to manage £40m worth of assets.
The mandate is to be managed against a multi-asset fixed weight benchmark.
Duncan Poole, chairman of the trustees for the scheme, said: “Our selection of Attica was the result of a detailed selection process in which we considered the major multi-manager providers.
“The trustees chose Attica as they believe it is the firm best placed to achieve the scheme’s objectives.”
