Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Soon after the launch of Antiloop Hedge in early September, Swedish fund management company AIFM Group formally announced a collaboration with the multi-strategy hedge fund run by a four-member team with Anna Svahn in charge. AIFM, the independent fund company that helped set up Antiloop Hedge as an alternative investment fund, will also serve as the external risk manager for the fund on an ongoing basis.
“This is yet another interesting partnership for AIFM Group and we are looking forward to working with the Antiloop team,” Dan Hjörnered, Chief Risk Officer of AIFM, comments on the partnership with Antiloop Hedge. “Being appointed as external risk manager shows the width of our risk management services, ranging from real estate and mortgage loans to private equity and multi-strategy hedge funds,” he adds.
Launched by Anna Svahn, Martin Sandquist, Karl-Mikael Syding, and Peter Dahlberg, Antiloop Hedge is a multi-strategy hedge fund employing seven different strategies based on different ideas, focus areas and asset classes. The four-member Antiloop team is comprised of experienced and talented professionals within the hedge fund community. Anna Svahn has experience in venture capital investing, while Karl-Mikael Syding is a former portfolio manager and senior partner at a now-closed Brummer & Partners-backed hedge fund Futuris. Sandquist co-founded Stockholm-based systematic asset manager Lynx Asset Management.
According to Svahn, the seven strategies employed by Antiloop Hedge exhibit low correlation both between each other and to the broader stock market. “We are unique in the sense that we offer our investors a way to gain exposure to a fund with low correlation to the overall markets,” Svahn, CEO and Portfolio Manager at Antiloop Hedge, says in connection to the partnership with AIFM. “This is achieved by combining seven strategies managed by different portfolio managers with diverse perspectives, time horizons, and expertise in various asset classes that are generally hard to reach.”
AIFM Group is a European asset manager and independent fund company offering a fully compliant, comprehensive infrastructure for money managers. AIFM also provides risk management, administration, valuation and accounting services to fund companies and financial institutions in Europe. Several funds have been launched in collaboration with AIFM Group this year, including the recently-launched AuAg Precious Green managed by Eric Strand.
