Amundi wins €300m multi-asset Fofs mandate

Amundi wins €300m multi-asset Fofs mandate

French pension fund ERAFP has awarded a multi-asset fund of funds mandate to Amundi, one of Europe's largest asset management groups.

This is the first move by the French institutional investor, which currently has around €14 billion in assets, to include a multi-management structure in its asset allocation process.

The tender for the SRI-driven multi-asset fund of funds mandate was originally launched in July 2012 and the French investor aims to invest around €150 million over a one-year horizon, rising to €300 million over three years.

French giant Amundi, whose assets under management total over €727 billion, has been selected to run ERAFP's active mandate while BNP Paribas and Neuflize OBC Investissements will be the mandate's stand-by managers.

The initial term of the contract is four years, which may be extended at ERAFP's option for two successive periods of two years each.
