Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report 2022

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – While Nordic hedge funds had a decent showing in 2021 and the previous three years, the new year did not start well. Despite the difficult start to 2022, the Nordic hedge fund industry is finding freshness in its life, with new launches coming up, more volatility – hence opportunities – across markets and securities to exploit and performance improvements.

Our aim at HedgeNordic is to keep everyone up to date with what is happening in the Nordic hedge fund industry by introducing new launches, explaining complex strategies and welcoming new people joining the industry. This publication, the Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report, is meant to help us achieve this objective.

This year’s Nordic Hedge Fund Industry Report kicks off with a discussion of the continuing “Hedge Fund Pandemic” – albeit at a slower pace, before we turn to “Brummer’s Entrepreneurial Route to a Multi-Manager Platform” with “20 Years in the Business and Still Learning Every Day.” Henrik Rhenman and Susanna Urdmark of Rhenman & Partners then have a discussion around “Healthcare – A Healthy Source of Returns and Downside Protection” before Magnus Vie Sundal from Borea Asset Management shares insights about “Borea’s Well-Timed Launch,” Borea Utbytte – last year’s best performer in the Nordic Hedge Index.

In “Lynx Celebrates Strong CTA Performance,” Lynx Partner Martin Källström discusses why CTAs are enjoying a performance resurgence and Swedish Lynx Asset Management is right in the midst of this surge. Fredrik Sjöstrand, the CIO of Scandinavian Credit Fund I, says their direct lending fund is “Doing Well Even in the Worst of Times” and continues to deliver positive single-digit returns for a sixth consecutive year despite “a very poor year by our standards” in 2021. Determined to continue “Achieving Paradigm Alpha,” Linköping-based money manager Alexander Hyll and his team are re-launching Adaptive Paradigm Alpha as a fully authorized alternative investment fund with the same strategy and name during the second quarter of this year.

“Excalibur Unsurprised by Rate Rises” tells the tale of how veteran fixed income traders Thomas Pohjanen, Björn Suurwee, and Marek Ozana are adapting to the new market climate. We then go on to introduce the strategy powering “Not the Typical Volatility Fund” managed by the Quant and Overlay team at Danske Bank Asset Management, where Chief Portfolio Manager Jacob Øland Jensen suggests “Volatility Should not be Your Wild Card.” Hilbert Group CEO Niclas Sandström, who co-founded a “One-Stop Institutional Shop for Crypto,” discusses the diversification benefits of cryptocurrencies, the importance of their strong infrastructure and walks us through Hilbert’s crypto-focused fund range.

Michal Danielewicz and Jens Wiberg Larsson, the founders and managers of St. Petri Capital’s thematic-focused long/short equity fund, had warned about the re-emergence of inflation well before inflationary pressures started creeping up all around the world and now say that “In My Book, Everything Points to Inflation.” Mika Jaatinen, Portfolio Manager of Hedge Fund Investments at Finnish pension insurance company Elo, discusses the advantages of investing in hedge funds and explains “Elo’s Approach to Hedge Fund Allocation.”

It has become a tradition that we highlight new launches in the Nordic Hedge Fund Industry report, and 2022 shall be no different in that aspect as we feature “The Tenoris Approach to Risk Mitigation.” We round off the publication with a summary of how the Nordic hedge fund industry performed in recent years, focusing on “What a Difference Three Years Make!”
