Launched in June 2010, the goal of the league was to offer a way for institutional investors to compare fund managers' skill at running identical mandates.

Each manager must run a paper portfolio with an identical set of guidelines: a market exposure of 98-100%, a minimum of 20 stocks, and a maximum exposure to any single sector of 35%.

Two leagues were originally launched at the end of June 2010, the pan-European and eurozone equity mandates, while the global equity mandate was launched at the end of December 2011.

In the eurozone equity mandate, the top performing team was the anti-benchmark boutique TOBAM, which posted returns of 5.08%.

In joint second place were the Invesco AM duo of Jeffrey Taylor and Matthew Perowne and the Federal Finance who returned 4.21% over the past month.

Of 19 participants in the European equity mandate, 11 managers outperformed the EuroStoxx Net Return which rose 3.15% over the month.

Third place went to Belgian firm Petercam’s Bart Baetens and Guy Lerminiaux who generated returns of 2.49% during the month of January.
