Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report 2019


Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – In HedgeNordic´s Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report 2019, we look back at the year 2018 and try to dissect what was the worst year for the industry in a decade. There were of course managers who were able to stand out and shine. Max Mitteregger tells us how his Gladiator Fond won the crowd with the best annual performance among all Nordic hedge funds. Norwegian Borea explains how a business-owner mindset helps sit through downturns. Per Johansson of Brummer & Partners´ newest addition, Bodenholm tells us “How to hold steady in shaky markets”, and Adrigo´s Staffan Östlin lets us in on some tricks on “finding value in neglected Nordic companies and we also look deeper into HP fund´s broadening of their fund range.

The “In Focus” topic of this edition highlights investors “search for diversification”. We look at three concrete examples of strategies that are by design not correlated to equity or fixed income markets: US life insurance policies, direct lending, and forestry – which also has the side effect of decarbonizing portfolios.

2018 was a record year in the Nordic hedge fund space in regards of new managers entering the ring, as well as those throwing in the towel. With Calculo, Alcur Select and SEB Eureka Fixed Income Relative Value three new launches of 2018 are introduced and we get to learn more about the funds’ strategies from the respective managers.

On the allocator side, Kirstein shares some intelligence into selling in the Nordic region, Stefan Ros gives us insights into SPK´s new approach, having overhauled the hedge fund portfolio for to the pension fund of the Swedish savings institutions. And finally, in a ten-page article, Pirkko Juntunen looks into the Swedish AP funds approach to alternatives, following new, relaxed investment guidelines.
