Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report 2021


Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – The 2021 Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report kicks off with a review of 2020, a tale of two extremes before we turn to “The White Crow,” interviewing Jonathan Copplestone who manages the Lucerne Nordic Fund out of New York. In “Fundamentally Driven,” we visit Volt Capital Management, a CTA using not price, but fundamental data in their trading models. Staffan Östlin of Adrigo lets us in on how to find “Truly Nordic Hidden Gems” and SEB’s team managing Eureka describes how they are “Capitalising on Nordic Market Inefficiencies and Volatility,” while Andreas Aaen at Symmetry bets on “Small Compounders.”

One of the newer additions to the NHX, St. Petri Capital describes how “Understanding and Capturing Change” leads to the Danish manager’s success. Fredrik Sjöstrand is convinced that “Boring is Good” when it comes to the strategies used by their factoring fund or Scandinavian Credit Fund.

Lynx wins 20 Year Award – but it is not relaxing” tells the tale of the journey behind, and also ahead of one of the Nordic’s oldest hedge funds.

For a PhD dissertation, Danielius Kolisovas dissects the equity sub-index to the Nordic Hedge Index and discovers “The Secrets of Long Livers – Crisis Alpha.” The CIO of Veritas Pension Insurance, Kari Vatanen asks the all-important question “Where Are the Diversifiers?” while the head of Nordea’s multi-asset team is turning to “SuperStrategies.”

It has become a tradition that we highlight three new launches in the Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report, and 2021 shall be no different in that aspect and Feature “DNB´s All-in-one,” Coeli’s Multi-Asset Fund insisting “You Can’t Eat a Sharpe Ratio” and Anna Svahn and Martin Sandquist, portfolio managers at Antiloop Hedge, explain “The Multi-Strategy Appeal.”

The Nordic hedge fund universe now for many years in a row has seen more graves than cradles, with more funds going out of business than are being launched. Reason enough for our very own Eugeniu Guzun to investigate “The Hedge Fund Pandemic.”
