Svante Bergström – Lynx

“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.

Lynx Asset Management AB manages Lynx Hedge Fund. The company was founded in 1999 and the managed capital amounts to approximately SEK 44 billion. The company has more than 70 employees and has established itself as one of the world’s leading companies in model-based asset management. The business idea is to act on the financial markets with the help of quantitative methods and a systematic approach to delivering as high a risk-adjusted return as possible to the company’s customers.
