UBS S&P 500 Index Fund

Portfolio Manager

Investment objective

The S&P 500 Index Fund is a index tracking fund that seeks to deliver performance that is consistent with that of the S&P 500 Net Total Return Index ("the Index") before the deduction of management fees and fund expenses over a full market cycle (typically 3 to 5 years).

The Fund will invest predominantly in the constituents of the Index. However, where investments do not fully replicate the Index, the Fund may invest in companies which, in the Manager's opinion, are expected to become part of the Index, or in cash. The Fund will physically replicate the risk exposures of the Index by investing in its component parts and aims to have a Target Tracking Error of +/- 0.5% per annum. The Anticipated Tracking Error is a target and is not guaranteed. The Anticipated Tracking Error is a target and is not guaranteed. 

UBS – Delivering flexible passive solutions

Passive management has been a capability in our firm for over 30 years; we set up one of the first index-tracking funds in the UK in 1979. Experienced investment professionals around the globe manage passive portfolios across asset classes including equities, fixed income and commodities against both regional and global benchmarks. 


We believe passive investing requires manager skill, experience and technology to achieve the best performance possible whilst closely tracking the underlying benchmark. 

Our aim 

To construct a portfolio that delivers the return of the underlying benchmark with very low tracking error by controlling risk and minimising costs.
