Big Step for Antiloop Hedge

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Anna Svahn joined forces with Martin Sandquist and Karl-Mikael Syding to launch multi-strategy hedge fund Antiloop Hedge in late 2020. So far run in “test-mode” with only internal sources of capital under the umbrella of Rookie AB, Antiloop Hedge is opening up for external investors and officially launching as a Finansinspektionen-approved hedge fund under the umbrella of authorized AIF manager Antiloop AB.

“On Friday, we finally received permission from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority to run a fund company and approved the fund regulations for our first special fund that will be launched in the near future.”

“Big step for Antiloop Hedge,” writes Anna Svahn (pictured left) on LinkedIn. “On Friday, we finally received permission from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority to run a fund company and approved the fund regulations for our first special fund that will be launched in the near future,” she continues. “It has been an incredibly instructive (and long) process and the whole team is very excited about the future. It’s starting!”

Antiloop Hedge is designed to run eight strategies that exhibit low correlation between each other and the broader traditional asset classes. The multi-strategy vehicle had a soft launch at the beginning of November of last year under the umbrella of Rookie AB and has mainly been running two strategies before the fund’s re-launch and full roll-out of the entire range of strategies.

“Rookie, the entity that we have been managing while waiting for approval from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority for Antiloop AB, is only a temporary setup without any external capital.”

“Rookie, the entity that we have been managing while waiting for approval from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority for Antiloop AB, is only a temporary setup without any external capital,” Svahn tells HedgeNordic. “Since we have mainly used this setup to test our systems and connections, we have not been able to trade with more than two out of 8 strategies, meaning the total risk in the portfolio is only 25 percent of what it will be in the actual fund.”

“The real idea behind Antiloop Hedge is to offer different strategies with low correlation to each other by investing in low-correlated assets,” Svahn previously told HedgeNordic. Each of the eight strategies reflects the “bottom-up approach from each portfolio manager who used a similar strategy before,” according to Martin Sandquist (pictured right), one of the co-founders of Lynx Asset Management who is now part of the Antiloop Hedge team.
