Border to Coast Pensions Partnership searches for specialist manager in UK real estate
Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, one of the largest pension pools in the United Kingdom, has launched a search for a specialist manager to support the development and management of its multi-billion-pound U.K. Real Estate Fund.
