Yellow Umbrella Mutual seeks Korea's bond managers for $550 mn mandate

Jan 08, 2021 (Gmt+09:00)

Yellow Umbrella Mutual Aid Fund Chief Investment Officer Jeong Du-Yeong

The Yellow Umbrella Mutual Aid Fund, a $12 billion savings arm for South Korea’s small business owners, is looking to mandate four domestic fixed income managers to invest a combined 600 billion won ($550 million) in global bonds.

It will receive proposals by Jan. 21 at 5 p.m. (Korean standard time), according to its request for proposal released on Jan. 7.

For the investment – which can be extended on a three-year basis – the mutual aid will employ either a buy and maintain strategy, or an active one.

When it comes to joint ventures, the fund is not allowed to include a JV established with a foreign company into their subportfolio, it said.

Qualified candidates should have a track record of global fixed income management for at least three years, with a minimum 10 billion won in global fixed income assets under management.
