SEB Dynamic Manager Alpha available as Ucits
Nordic bank SEB has announced that its $170m Dynamic Manager Alpha fund is now accessible to retail investors as a Ucits.
First launched in 2005 as a managed account, the strategy has a seven year track record. The strategy has generated a return of 24.46% since launch.
SEB said it has returned consistent positive growth every year since inception. The fund launched in Luxembourg Part II format in 2008 and received a “gold2 rating from S&P in 2011.
Kerstin Cooley, senior product manager Hedge Funds at SEB said: “As retail investors become more sophisticated and independent in making their investment decisions, they continue to ask for access to institutional products which offer high-quality, security and returns. They are now an increasingly important segment in our overall investor base, and over the last years have shown growing interest in our investment strategies. The Ucits format of DM Alpha is therefore the logical next step in its evolution. It enables retail investors to invest in a proven product which has consistently generated above average returns, and we anticipate that the industry will further extend the availability of sophisticated investment vehicles to a broader audience.”
The Ucits will be available to retail investors in Luxembourg and Sweden, and will be passported to investors in other jurisdictions in coming weeks.
