ACCESS opens hunt for global equity value manager

The ACCESS pool of U.K. local authority pension funds is searching for an active value manager to run 650 million ($827 million) in global equity, a spokeswoman said.

The 45 billion pool appointed operator Link Fund Solutions and investment consultant Russell Investments to work in partnership to find an active global equity manager with a value bias for the pool's subfunds, expected to be launched in 2019.

Details of strategy requirements can be obtained from Russell via email. Further information was not immediately available.
