UK - The combined Alliance & Leicester Pension Schemes has launched a manager review of Capital International because of underperformance, according to MandateWire.
Robert Tyrell, pension fund manager at Alliance & Leicester Pension Schemes, told MandateWire: "[Capital International's] performance hasn't been good. It's well known that on and off for the last four or three years their performance has been bad.
