The global equity and fixed income teams at Aberdeen Asset Management have scored major institutional mandates.

The $2.7 billion Non-Government Schools Superannuation Fund (NGS Super) has allocated a $150 million mandate to Victor Rodriguez’s fixed income team at Aberdeen, while ING Investment Management (ING IM) reserved a “sizeable” chunk of the global equities portfolio in its Multi-Strategies Group for Stephen Docherty’s Edinburgh-based global equity team, which oversees $20 billion, according to Aberdeen.

Brett Jollie, head of the manager’s Australian business, said the mandates were an “endorsement” of the teams’ capabilities.

Neither Anthony Rodwell-Ball, chief executive of NGS Super, or Emmanuel Calligeris, chief investment officer of ING IM’s Multi-Strategies Group, were available for comment at presstime.
