Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Up-and-coming fund boutique Protean Funds is strengthening its investment team with the hiring of Ramil Koria ahead of the planned launch of a long-only fund in the summer. Koria will join Protean’s investment team consisting of co-founding duo Pontus Dackmo and Carl Gustafsson on July 1.

“We strengthen the investment team with a great guy and stock nerd Ramil Koria, who will join us on July 1st,” the team at Protean announces on LinkedIn. “Ramil will be part of the fund management team, and strengthen our analytical capacity ahead of the Protean Small Cap launch,” the team adds. “We are chuffed to have Ramil on board and he will be an important contributor as our new Protean Small Cap fund is launched shortly.”

“We strengthen the investment team with a great guy and stock nerd Ramil Koria, who will join us on July 1st.”

Ramil Koria will join Protean Funds from SEB, where he has been working for a little more than seven years. Koria first joined SEB in March 2016 as an equity trader and then worked as an equity research analyst for four and a half years. He has been working in equity sales since early 2022. Koria was ranked the number one TMT analyst in Sweden for several years and was crowned Rookie Analyst of the Year by Financial Hearings in 2021.

Following the successful launch of its long-biased long/short equity fund Protean Select in May of last year, Protean Funds is planning the launch of a long-only small- and mid-cap-focused equity fund. “In Protean Small Cap, the goal is simply returns, compared to the risk-adjusted returns we strive for in Protean Select,” explains Pontus Dackmo in the latest monthly letter to investors. “The Small Cap fund will have a starting point from the Small and Midcap portion of Protean Select, which has been doing well since its inception,” according to Dackmo.
