- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Stockholm-based hedge fund manager Origo Capital has been named the “Best Sustainable Alternative Investment Manager” in the Nordics in 2020 by finance magazine Capital Finance International (CFI). Origo Capital manages long/short equity fund Origo Quest 1, which seeks to invest in sustainable small- and mid-cap companies in the Nordics with good value potential.

The investment team running Origo Quest 1 – comprised of CIO Stefan Roos (pictured) and portfolio manager Carl Rydin – seeks to identify value-creating changes at investment candidates and strives to act as a committed and active owner. The team occasionally engages in constructive activism to unlock shareholder value. As a member of SWESIF, the Swedish Sustainable Investment Forum, Origo Capital weights environmental and ethical considerations in all decision making. “The CFI.co judging panel congratulates the firm on its dependable approach, and presents Origo Capital with the 2020 award for Best Sustainable Alternative Investment Manager (Nordics),” writes CFI.

“We are happy, surprised and very honoured to receive this recognition,” comments Stefan Roos, who founded Origo Capital in 2012. “Sustainability in our investment approach is about investing in sustainable and value-creating companies that meet the opportunities and needs of the future,” he says. “This recognition clearly encourages us to continue on the same path,” Roos adds. “We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Advisory Board led by Sasja Beslik and Ulrika Wiklund, who have contributed substantially.”

Origo Quest 1 has maintained an average net market exposure of about 40 percent since launching in early 2013 and has delivered an annualized return of 8.3 percent. The long/short equity fund delivered an annual return above ten percent in five of the past seven years.
