- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Shortly after celebrating its tenth anniversary this summer, Nordkinn Fixed Income Macro Fund welcomed Anders Augusén as an investment manager effective September 1. Augusén, renowned for his long and successful career as a portfolio manager at Brummer & Partners-backed Nektar Asset Management, also co-founded and co-managed Frost Asset Management’s now-closed fixed-income relative value fund. Before joining Nordkinn, he briefly worked at Barclays Corporate and Investment Bank.

“We are proud and excited that Anders Augusén has joined the Nordkinn team as Investment Manager from September 1st, 2023,” states Erik Eidolf, the CEO of Nordinn Asset Management. “Not only is Anders a tremendously accomplished expert in fixed income and FX markets, his unique skill-set as investment manager builds upon experiences he has drawn over the past 25 years as a dedicated absolute return portfolio manager at leading Nordic institutions,” continues the CEO of the fixed-income specialist that is based in Stockholm and Olso. “In sharing respect for continuously building on experiences, we also appreciate the natural fit of Anders into our team and culture.”

“We are proud and excited that Anders Augusén has joined the Nordkinn team as Investment Manager from September 1st, 2023.”

Anders Augusén’s career in fixed-income markets began at Nektar Asset Management in 1997, where he worked as a portfolio manager until 2006. He later served as a lead portfolio manager at AP3 for two years before joining SEB as Head of Short Rates Trading for nearly six years. In 2014, Augusén rejoined Nektar Asset Management, remaining there until the closure of its fixed-income relative value and macro fund in the summer of 2019. Subsequently, he co-launched and co-managed a relative value hedge fund focusing on Scandinavian fixed-income markets alongside former colleagues from Nektar. Augusén has now been appointed a portfolio manager of Norkinn’s global macro fixed-income fund, launched in the summer of 2013.

“With our Nordkinn Fixed Income Macro Fund having turned 10 years this summer, the timing of this strong addition could not have been better.”

“With our Nordkinn Fixed Income Macro Fund having turned 10 years this summer, the timing of this strong addition could not have been better,” comments Eidolf. “We believe that the paradigm shift away from zero/negative interest rates environment in favor of a structural elevation in interest rates, inflation and volatility, create an ever-expanding opportunity set for our strategy going forward,” he emphasizes. To further strengthen Nordkinn for the coming ten years, the appointment of Anders Augusen was accompanied by the promotion of Marcus Söderberg to investment manager after five years at the firm. “With six Investment Managers and one Head of Research, we believe that our investment team has the optimal set-up within our mandate to explore the investment opportunities created in the new market environment.”
