Pursuant to legislation governing the FRR, in July of 2003 the Fund formed a manager selection committee to assist the Executive Board in the task of screening portfolio management companies being considered for asset management mandates. The Manager Selection Committee is fully independent and examines management applicants with due care and diligence. Its members are subject to ethical guidelines that are consistent with their duties.
Article R 135-27 of the French Social Security Code provides for the formation of a Manager Selection Committee, which is responsible for opening and analyzing the proposals submitted by asset management firms competing for FRR mandates. In addition, the Executive Board consults with the Committee on these RFPs, and reports on the performance of the mandates referred to in this article.
