Special Report: Alternative Investments in Finland

Stockholm, Helsinki (HedgeNordic) –  With only 15 funds out of the 154 constituents of the Nordic Hedge Index (NHX) being classified as Finnish, Finland represents the smallest group of managers in the country breakdown of the Nordic Hedge Fund Universe (disregarding Iceland, which has no managers or funds listed in the NHX). The quantity, however, tells us little about the quality of the managers and the outstanding talent active in numerous fields of the hedge fund space.

Aside from hedge fund managers, there is a wealth of local players active in the alternative investment universe, ranging from real estate to private equity and venturecapital, alongside even more exotic investment propositions.

Finnish institutional investors are well-experienced, sophisticated and eager allocators to alternative investments. For a long time a quick trip to Helsinki has been an insider tip among eager sales people looking for big tickets – but the word is out! Especially the large Finnish institutions are regularly pursued as much appreciated investors. Finnish mangers however, find it harder to attract due-diligence, research and investment teams for an on-site visit as the country is out of the travel path of the main financial centers.

In this special report on the Finnish alternative investment universe we want to make up for neglecting the country a little by playing our part to put Finland on the map! The publication shall not just focus on the hedge fund space, introducing local managers and allocators alike, as well as foreign players active on the market. Much more, the report shall act as a one stop shop and give the Finnish alternative investment space an opportunity to present themselves as a whole.
