Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – David Buhl, an investment analyst focusing on hedge fund analysis and selection at Secure Spectrum, has been promoted to portfolio manager after completing his Master’s Degree in Applied Economics and Finance from Copenhagen Business School. Buhl has been working alongside Jeppe Blirup, Spectrum’s Head of Hedge Funds, and portfolio manager Andreas Skov to manage the fund of hedge funds, Secure Hedge.

Buhl’s journey at Secure Spectrum began in 2021 as a part-time investment analyst while pursuing his Master’s Degree, during which he authored his Master’s Thesis on “Navigating Activist Short-Selling.” He is now transitioning into a full-time portfolio manager position within the team overseeing Secure Hedge. “It’s incredibly cool to finally be a more integral part of Secure Spectrum than when I was a student,” comments Buhl. “I have some really talented colleagues, so it has been a pleasure to become part of the team full-time, and help continue to deliver a good product to all our customers and partners.”
