Lannebo launches ISK access to own funds

Lannebo Fonder, the Swedish boutique with some SEK70bn (€6.8bn) of AUM, has launched its investeringssparkonto (ISK)  for local investors who wish to save directly into its funds within a tax efficient wrapper.

The ISK regime in Sweden works similarly to, for example, the ISA regime in the UK, in that account holders can invest in funds without having to make an annual tax declaration including full details of all transactions. In the case of the ISK, as long as the fund holdings are kept within the account, the investor needs only pay a flat tax annually, with the rate set by fiscal authorities. For 2018, the rate has been set at 0.45%, which means an investor would pay tax of SEK450 (€44) on a SEK100,000 (€9,693) investment.

Until 2018, the regime meant that fund providers were not themselves able to offer ISK accounts directly to investors. This has changed, and Lannebo has announced that all its funds are now accessible through this type of account. The precise funds and share classes available include:
