Standish awarded fixed income mandate by Dutch life and pension fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Standish Mellon Asset Management, the fixed income specialist for BNY Mellon Asset Management, has been appointed to manage a EUR230m European fixed income mandate by Achmea Beleggingsfondsen Beheer, part of one of the largest Dutch insurance companies.

Achmea distributes a fixed income unit trust to clients in the Netherlands as part of its product offering. Until recently, the management of this unit trust had been contracted to one investment manager.

Achmea has taken the decision to appoint two additional managers, resulting in a portion of the unit trust being managed by three different investment managers.

Standish is the only appointed manager based outside of the Netherlands. The mandate will be managed by Standish’s dedicated euro fixed income team under the leadership of David Leduc, managing director of global fixed income.

"We are delighted to have been appointed by Achmea to manage this mandate. Our performance and range of investment strategies are compelling to institutions across Europe, as institutions increasingly see their value as a diversifier and potential return enhancer relative to their domestic bond portfolios," says Desmond Mac Intyre, president and chief executive officer of Standish.
