Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Portfolio manager Stefan Wigstrand will join Storebrand Asset Management’s Swedish fixed-income team after six years at Catella Fonder – later renamed Celina Fonder – that was acquired by Case Group. Wigstrand has been running fixed-income strategies and mandates at Catella Fonder, including the fixed-income strategy leg of multi-asset, multi-strategy fund Catella Hedgefond, now called Case Hedgefond.

“Given the trend with rising interest rates and wider credit spreads, Stefan’s solid skills as a credit manager in the Nordic market will come in handy to navigate among the bonds we invest in,” comments Gustaf Linnell, Head of Swedish Fixed Income at Storebrand Asset Management. “Stefan’s experience in both large and small organizations contributes to a great understanding of the challenges that apply to fixed-income investors and will contribute to our investment analysis.”

“Given the trend with rising interest rates and wider credit spreads, Stefan’s solid skills as a credit manager in the Nordic market will come in handy…”

Wigstrand was part of the team that joined Case Fonder following its acquisition of Celina Fonder’s fund operations. He has been the portfolio manager of Celina Credit Opportunity, an absolute return special fund investing in Nordic fixed-income securities. Wigstrand has also been responsible for the fixed-income leg of Case Hedgefond, once a €1.4 billion Catella-branded low-risk multi-strategy hedge fund that is undergoing a restructuring process under the umbrella of Case Fonder. Before joining Catella Fonder in 2016, Wigstrand served as a fixed-income portfolio manager at Skandia and Nexum Capital, which he co-founded, as well as a credit analyst at Öhman. Wigstrand will assume his role as portfolio manager at Storebrand on May 1, 2023.

“It feels fun and stimulating to become part of Storebrand’s portfolio management team.”

Through the breadth of its fixed-income management in Sweden, there is the structure needed to create a good environment for portfolio management and returns for customers.”
