Fidelity has topped International Pensions News exclusive ranking of worldwide pension fund mandates won and lost, with a net amount won of US$4.6bn. Fidelity comes top out of nearly 200 fund managers that have either won or lost mandates in the first four months of 2001.
Fidelity has won just over US$5bn in mandates and lost US$426m, resulting in the net figure of US$4.6bn. Fidelity won two UK pension fund global equity mandates totalling £105m and pinched a Baring Asset Management Japanese equity mandate worth £20m from Clwyd Pension Fund (Flintshire). The Dutch fund, Stichting Pensioenfonds Ahold, awarded the manager a EUR30m Pacific-basin equities mandate in February, and last month Fidelity captured a HK$500m HSBC/Schroders global growth equity mandate from Hong Kong Chinese University’s pension plan. But it was the US, where Fidelity won a US$2.9bn mandate from the Dow Chemical Co Retirement Plan, that had the most influence in helping it to top of the global ranking.
Legal & General Investment Management came second with a net total of US$3.3bn and Capital Group (including Capital International) was third with a net gain of US$2.3bn
Schroder Investment Management came second bottom with a net loss of US$759m and Prudential Portfolio Managers, which transferred its UK segregated and balanced business to Deutsche in March last year, came last with a total loss of US$3.7bn.
