A pair of hedge funds have won a combined US$210 million in mandates from Mercer's Asia-Pacific unit.
Arrowstreet Capital Partners will manage US$150 million for Mercer's Overseas Shares Small Companies Portfolio, some 40% of that basket. The quantitative shop and Fidelity Investments are the only two managers in the Small Companies portfolio.
In addition, fellow quant shop AQR Capital Management was awarded a US$60 million mandate for Mercer's alternative assets portfolio. AQR has been charged with investing in liquid, transparent alternative strategies.
"What we're looking for is low long-term average correlation to traditional markets," Stephen Roberts of Mercer Investment Management, told the Financial Standard.
