Origo Continues Quest with Long-Only Fund

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Stockholm-based hedge fund manager Origo Fonder is expanding its fund offering with the launch of Origo SELEQT, a long-only equity fund investing in Nordic micro- and small-sized companies. Based on the Origo model fixated on active management, long-term commitment and a clear focus on value drivers, Origo SELEQT will invest in attractively valued and growing small companies in the Nordic region with market values below €2 billion.

Similar to Origo Fonder’s long/short equity fund, Origo QUEST 1, Origo SELEQT will maintain a concentrated portfolio of genuine small companies with sustainable business models that create sustainable societal benefits. Both Origo QUEST 1 and Origo SELEQT are managed by CIO Stefan Roos and portfolio manager Christoffer Ahnemark. Origo SELEQT’s return goal is to exceed the long-term return generated by Nordic small-cap stocks.

“SELEQT will be our first pure equity fund and the product complements the hedge fund Origo QUEST 1 excellently.”

“Origo Fonder is in a growth phase; the number of customers is growing, assets under management are increasing and we are noticing a clear demand for our small company expertise,” comments Stefan Roos, Investment Manager and CEO of Origo Fonder. “SELEQT will be our first pure equity fund and the product complements the hedge fund QUEST 1 excellently,” he continues. “The ambition is for Origo SELEQT to be the obvious choice for long-term savings.”

“SELEQT is a unique fund that strives to capture the great value creation that is generated among the most interesting and dynamic small and micro companies in the Nordic region.”

“The Nordic region is a fantastic region for an active small-cap investor,” adds Christoffer Ahnemark, fund manager at Origo Fonder. “The opportunities are great, especially among the very smallest companies that lack analyst coverage,” says Ahnemark, who joined Origo’s investment management team in August of last year. “SELEQT is a unique fund that strives to capture the great value creation that is generated among the most interesting and dynamic small and micro companies in the Nordic region.”

Prior to the launch of Origo SELEQT, Origo Fonder had been focused on running its long/short equity fund, Origo QUEST 1. The fund has generated an annualized return of 10.1 percent since launching in February 2013 to achieve an inception-to-date Sharpe ratio of 0.85.
