Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Aktie-Ansvar, the Swedish fund management company behind the Graal family of hedge funds, continue to expand its investment management team.

In a note sent out on Thursday, the company announces the addition of three new hires, all with a quant or programmatic background.

The new additions are Björn Löfdahl (pictured right) who joins from Handelsbanken Capital Markets, Tobias Grelsson (pictured middle), most recently with GNO-Data, and Boualem Djehiche (pictured left) who is professor in mathematical statistics from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

Djehiche has had various leading roles within insurance and risk management at Skanda Liv and has also been jointly responsible for the strategic research at Swedish quant asset manager IPM.

Löfdahl will enter the role as quantitative portfolio manager, Grelsson as programmer and Djehiche will act as senior advisor to the portfolio management team, the note states.

The recent hires follow the addition of Philip Wendt and Maria Ljungqvist who joined Aktie-Ansvar earlier this year, as previously reported by HedgeNordic.
