On behalf of KLD, LD expects to tender for Fund Management services (i.e. the management of the KLD, as an alternative investment fund, in accordance with the Danish Alternative Investment Fund Managers' Act) and Depositary Services to be provided to KLD. LD has conducted market dialogue meetings in accordance with the invitation sent out in the ‘Notice for Prior Information Only’ dispatched 16.3.2017. LD hereby provide the market with a summary on the relevant findings of the completed dialogue meetings.
The dialogue meetings have provided LD with valuable market information regarding the Fund Management services and Depository Services to be provided to KLD in order for LD to prepare the tender material. Accordingly, LD expects to structure the tender process for Fund Management Services and Depository Services as one combined tender process including the two separate contracts/lots but with an obligation to submit an offer for both contracts. Therefore, tenderers have to team up prior to the tender. LD expects to allow an entity to team up in more teams (e.g. the same Fund Manager can team up with more than one Depositary).
LD expects to initiate the tender process during the summer of 2017. LD thus encourages potential tenderers to be aware of this time frame for purposes of forming any collaborations between suppliers of Fund Management services and Depository Services, respectively.
