Sissener and Nordea’s Alpha Win UCITS Awards

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – The Hedge Fund Journal, a monthly magazine focusing on the global hedge fund industry, has published the list of winners at the 2023 UCITS Hedge Awards. Sissener Canopus and Nordea’s Alpha 15 MA Fund are the two Nordic winners at the UCITS Hedge Awards for a second consecutive year.

The winners of a wide range of strategy categories at the UCITS Hedge Awards across different time horizons are determined by risk-adjusted returns based on data provided by Preqin. The team at the Hedge Fund Journal contacts the best performers – based solely on the data – and requests their participation in the awards. If a winning fund declines to participate, the Hedge Fund Journal scraps the award category without contacting the next best performer to request their participation.

Sissener Canopus, a frequent winner at the UCITS Hedge Awards, has been named the best-performing fund over seven and ten years in the “Long/Short Equity Global – Discretionary” category at this year’s edition of the UCITS Hedge Award. The long/short equity fund run by founder Jan Petter Sissener and his team has generated an annualized return of 10.4 percent in the past three years after booking an 8.2 percent advance in the challenging market conditions of 2022. Sissener Canopus, which employs a discretionary long/short equity strategy focused on bottom-up stock picking, has delivered an annualized return of 12.1 percent since its launch in May 2012.

Nordea 1 – Alpha 15 MA Fund, a multi-asset, multi-strategy fund harvesting different risk premia, has been selected as the best-performing fund over the past four, seven, and ten years in the “Alternative Risk Premia” category. The Alpha 15 fund is part of Nordea Asset Management’s Alpha Solutions family that also includes the Alpha 7 MA and Alpha 10 MA funds, with all sharing the same investment approach but exhibiting different risk-return profiles. The three funds managed by Nordea’s multi-asset investment team headed by Asbjørn Trolle Hansen combine several low-correlated strategies to provide dynamic exposure to multiple asset classes, seeking to capture both traditional and non-traditional risk-premia return drivers.
