Making the Much-Craved Leap

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – A Danish serial entrepreneur, author and investor is awaiting the go-ahead from regulators to launch his own hedge fund. Lars Tvede (pictured), a Danish citizen who has been living in Switzerland for many years, is launching a Luxembourg-domiciled hedge fund set to be managed by a Switzerland-based investment management firm.

“For long periods over the last 30 years, I have made hedge fund-like investments for myself. In the years 2000 to 2006, I did pretty much nothing else. It has given really high returns,” Tvede tells Euroinvestor.dk. “Quite often over the years, therefore, people have asked me why I do not put these investments in a fund where others can participate. I do this now that I have completed a number of projects and have time for it,” says Tvede.

“The strategy will be the same as I have personally engaged with for the last 30 years, a global and flexible strategy without geographical restrictions that employs controlled leverage.”

Describing the investment strategy of the soon-to-be-launched hedge fund, Tvede tells Euroinvestor.dk that “the strategy will be the same as I have personally engaged with for the last 30 years, a global and flexible strategy without geographical restrictions that employs controlled leverage.” According to Tvede, “this, of course, increases the complexity of the fund, which in turn sets some legal limits for who can invest” in the vehicle. Tvede’s hedge fund, therefore, caters to international professional or semi-professional investors who can meet the fund’s minimum investment requirement of €100,000. “The perfect investor has a large liquid fortune and invests a small part of it in my fund,” Tvede tells Euroinvestor.dk.

“The purpose of the fund is to create a return that is greater than the one you get by simply laying passively in equities and that is also partially independent of the fluctuations of equity markets.”

“The purpose of the fund is to create a return that is greater than the one you get by simply laying passively in equities and that is also partially independent of the fluctuations of equity markets,” tells Euroinvestor.dk. “At least that is what I have been able to do with my own money over the years,” he continues. “In addition, my partners and I have a separate goal of giving our customers access to financial and economic insights that virtually no one has today.”

These insights stem from a forecasting company he co-founded that provides crowdsourced prognostics, as well as news and analysis about promising innovations of the future. The forecasting company called Supertrends “uses crowdsourcing and artificial to look into the future.” In addition to co-founding Supertrends and other ventures, the serial entrepreneur has also authored several books, including “Business Cycles,” “Supertrends” and “The Psychology of Finance,” among others.
