Not Too Late: Japan’s GPIF Seeks External Managers for Foreign Bonds

The US$ 1.26 trillion Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) is seeking external managers for bonds ex-Japan. These include active mandates in high-yield, inflation-linked and emerging market debt. The GPIF holds around 11% of assets in foreign debt. The pension giant will most likely continue to increase foreign debt on behalf of domestic debt allocation.

Analyzing GPIF’s 2012 fiscal year report, Goldman Sachs Asset Management and PIMCO were managers in GPIF’s active foreign debt program.
