There will be no tracking error requirements for the mandate, listed under QN1201.

The fund exclusively seeks long-only investment managers.

Interested managers should have minimum $500m of assets under management and $100m in similar mandates.

Although the search is in US dollars, Swiss asset managers are welcome to apply.
