DENMARK - The near Dkr6.3bn BankPension - the Danish fund for the financial industry - is close to appointing up to three managers for a new EUR60m private equity brief.
The mandate will run alongside an existing EUR30m private equity portfolio managed by Wilshire Private Markets.
Leif Hasager, head of investment fro the Valby-based fund, said that the mandate focus is outside of Denmark, citing Dublin or Paris as possible targets.
Wilshire did not apply for the additional mandate, added Hasager.
Five undisclosed managers have been shortlisted for the brief; a decision is expected in December.
