Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – SEB Diversified, the multi-strategy hedge fund managed by Hans-Olov Bornemann (pictured), was selected “Best Hedge Fund 2017” at the annual “Årets Fonder” event held in Stockholm.
The event is organized by Fondab, a company running the Fondmarknaden.se fund platform that holds over 1.800 underlying funds.
Commenting on the reasoning behind the winning choice, Fondmarknaden writes:
“The fund has, throughout 2017, delivered solid risk-adjusted returns which makes it stand out among other hedge funds in the medium-risk category. In our evaluation of this category, we have only considered funds offering daily liquidity where the minimum investment size is low enough to be accessed by the average retail investor.”
“We consider the fund to skillfully exploit opportunities, primarily in the fixed income markets, both from the long and the short side using leverage. In this case, we have made an exception to the rule that the fund needs 36 months of data in order to be included in our review since the fund is approaching the 3-year mark. The strong returns delivered by the fund made us do this exception.”
