SEB’s Multi-Strategy Fixed Income Fund Joins the NHX

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – While most Nordic hedge funds are already part of the Nordic Hedge Index (NHX), some hedge fund vehicles in the region are enjoying life out of the spotlight. After nearly seven years of existence, multi-strategy fixed-income fund SEB Alternative Fixed Income finally joins the NHX family.

SEB Alternative Fixed Income is a macro and relative-value hedge fund in a UCITS format with daily liquidity. The fund predominantly invests in the European investment-grade credit market, investing in corporate debt, bank and insurance debt using cash instruments and derivatives such as credit default swaps on single names or indices. The alternative fixed-income vehicle, managed by a three-member team comprised of Jonas Molin, Peter Tram and Örjan Pettersson, employs several strategies in credit, fixed-income and foreign exchange markets in Scandinavia and other G10 countries. The multi-strategy approach to credit investing allows SEB Alternative Fixed Income to exploit investment opportunities during all phases of the economic cycle.

The multi-strategy fixed-income fund aims to generate positive returns regardless of the direction of broader bond and equity markets, targeting an average annual return of three percent above the risk-free rate over a three-to-five-year period. Örjan Pettersson has been managing SEB Alternative Fixed Income since late January of 2015, joined by senior portfolio manager Jonas Molin in July of the same year. Peter Tram joined the portfolio management team earlier this year. The fund was launched in December 2011 under the name SEB Credit Multi Strategy and was renamed into SEB Alternative Fixed Income in mid-June of 2016 when the fund’s investment focus was expanded.
