Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Swedbank Robur has appointed Nejla-Selma Salkovic as the co-manager of Swedbank Robur Technology, alongside Christian Blink, who is the responsible portfolio manager of the fund after the departure of Kristofer Barrett. Salkovic currently serves as an investment analyst at tech-focused boutique investment firm GP Bullhound, where she is part of the team managing GP Bullhound’s funds investing in public equities, including a long/short equity fund.

In June, Nejla-Selma Salkovic will step into the role of co-portfolio manager of Swedbank Robur Technology, which oversees SEK 163 billion in assets under management. She has been a member of the GP Bullhound team since September 2021, where she contributed to the management of long-only Global Technology Fund and the technology-focused long/short equity Thyra Hedge Fund. Prior to her tenure at GP Bullhound, the 28-year-old worked in corporate finance at Erik Penser Bank and completed a traineeship at DZ Bank in New York, among other roles.

“We are very happy she will be joining the team managing Swedbank Robur Technology as an assistant manager alongside main manager Christian Blink at the beginning of the summer,” Ulrika Enhörning, Swedbank Robur’s equity manager tells Affärsvärlden. Swedbank Robur Technology is Sweden’s largest technology fund with about SEK 163 billion in assets under management. The fund has been overseen by Christian Blink since he assumed the role in February of this year.

Swedbank Robur Technology has an impressive track record, with an annualized return of 27.3 percent over the past five years and 26.4 percent over the past decade. GP Bullhound’s long-only technology-focused fund, managed by portfolio manager Inge Heydorn and Head of Asset Management Per Roman, has also performed strongly in recent years, achieving an annualized return of 24 percent in the past five years. Heydorn’s long/short hedge fund has experienced a resurgence in performance after gaining 17.6 percent in 2023, followed by a 10.3 percent advance in the first three months of 2024.
