Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Systematic asset manager Lynx Asset Management has brought in two Co-Heads of Systematic Equities to lead a long-term project in developing a systematic long/short equity strategy. The new hires include the previous head of SEB’s Quantitative Equity team, Andreas Johansson, and Stefan Nydahl, previously CEO of systematic manager Informed Portfolio Management (IPM).

“The equity space offers huge opportunities for systematic trading and we now embark on a multi-year project to develop a world-class strategy that is differentiated from our current product offerings,” Martin Källström, Deputy CEO and Partner at Lynx Asset Management, tells HedgeNordic. “With decades of experience in the managed futures space, we possess the knowledge and expertise in systematic strategies,” he continues. “The appointments of Andreas and Stefan as Co-Heads of Systematic Equities bring additional competence in this area and support our multi-year project.”

Andreas Johansson (pictured right) joins Lynx Asset Management after a decade at SEB, most recently as Head of the Quantitative Equity team at SEB Investment Management, a role he held for more than three years. The team managed in excess of $10 billion in a range of global equity funds and mandates. Johansson also served as Head of Quantitative Analysis and a portfolio manager during his tenure at SEB. Before joining SEB in 2010, Johansson worked as a Senior Quantitative Portfolio Trader and Researcher at Marble Bar Asset Management, where he co-designed, built, and traded systematic equity strategies. His previous experience also includes roles as an Equity Strategist at Brevan Howard Asset Management and a Quantitative Analyst on the Global Equity Strategy and Tactical Asset Allocation teams at Deutsche Bank.

Stefan Nydahl (pictured left) most recently served as the CEO of Informed Portfolio Management (IPM), once a prominent hedge fund firm in the Nordics overseeing over $8 billion in assets under management. He joined IPM in 2015 from the Brummer & Partners group, where he co-founded Archipel Asset Management in 2006 and served as its President and Chief Investment Officer. Nydahl previously also worked as a portfolio manager at Nektar Asset Management, AMF Pension, and Quantal Asset Management.

Andreas Johansson and Stefan Nydahl will focus on developing a systematic equity strategy to complement Lynx Asset Management’s existing product lineup, which includes its flagship trend-following program and a more recently launched systematic macro program. The Stockholm-based asset manager oversees approximately $7.1 billion in assets under management. The original Lynx Fund, which uses both trend-following and diversifying models to capitalize on opportunities across a broad range of markets and asset classes, has achieved an annualized return of 9.3 percent since its inception in May of 2000 with a negative 0.14 correlation to the MSCI World Index.
