Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Martin Källström will be joining Swedish CTA manager Lynx in September 2018 as a partner and member of management. Källström will be joining from AP1, where he currently acts as head of alternative investments for over ten years.
“Martin is one of the most qualified hedge fund investors in the Nordic countries and has long and extensive experience of evaluating quantitative strategies. Our industry is moving towards offering the big pension funds increasingly sophisticated and tailored solutions, and this is an area where Martin’s experience from the client side will be very valuable. The recruitment of Martin is part of our strategy to strengthen our position as one of the world’s leading quantitative asset managers,” Svante Bergström, Lynx’s founder and CEO, says.
“I have been following Lynx for many years and am impressed by the concerted manner in which they have built a world-class asset management organisation. They offer a unique and conducive environment in which to develop tomorrow’s systematic asset management products. I look forward to working with Lynx’s highly qualified research team – thirty experienced mathematicians and statisticians – to develop new and innovative investment strategies using a toolkit that includes conventional statistical methods as well as machine learning and artificial intelligence,” Martin Källström comments.
