New Opportunity for Atlant Opportunity

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Atlant Opportunity, the largest fund under the umbrella of Swedish asset manager Atlant Fonder with about €395 million under management, has been added on the guided fund offering at Folksam Fondförsäkring. Swedish insurer Folksam’s Folksam Fondförsäkring does not have its own funds but offers a guided range of external funds through a fund platform, with all funds in the guided range being sustainable based on Folskam’s own criteria.

Atlant Opportunity, a market-neutral fund that can invest in corporate bonds, index derivatives, equity derivatives, individual stocks, among other securities, is available in Folksam Fondförsäkring’s guided fund offer from March 15. “The fact that Folksam takes in Atlant Opportunity serves as proof of our hard work with governance and sustainability issues,” comments Michael Ekelund (pictured), the CEO of Atlant Fonder. “We have raised the Atlant funds to a level that most of them can handle the toughest selection criteria,” he emphasizes. “The track record of Atlant Opportunity has always been strong. We look forward to starting the collaboration with Folksam and being able to offer their customers a really good fund.”

“The fact that Folksam takes in Atlant Opportunity serves as proof of our hard work with governance and sustainability issues.”

Atlant Opportunity is a market-neutral and absolute return-focused alternative fund that aims to generate returns not linked to movements on the stock exchange or other markets. Atlant Opportunity caters to savers interested in a fund with a low-volatility return profile that can serve as a stable pillar in their fund savings. The fund has enjoyed six consecutive years of positive returns and has delivered an annualized return of 5.2 percent since its launch in January 2016 through the end of February this year. Atlant Opportunity has grown considerably since launching at the beginning of 2016, with the fund’s assets under management increasing from about SEK 60 million at the end of 2017 to over SEK 1 billion in early 2020, more than SEK 2 billion in late 2020 and well over SEK 4 billion in late 2021.

“The track record of Atlant Opportunity has always been strong. We look forward to starting the collaboration with Folksam and being able to offer their customers a really good fund.”

Atlant Opportunity seeks to function as an “all-weather fund,” relying on active management of interest-bearing investments, derivative strategies and a small proportion of growth shares. “The fund’s focus is on maintaining a steady and robust return, which it has done since it was launched on 1 January 2016,” writes Atlant Fonder in a press release. “The fund has had a positive return every year since its launch, and the annual average return for the first six years is 5.7 percent, which has been achieved at low risk.”
