Nordic highlights stress dynamic selection sector

Highlights of the Nordic Summit Stockholm 2018, hosted by InvestmentEurope in the Swedish capital on 12-13 March, illustrate the dynamic nature of the region’s fund selection activities.

Already noted for the high levels of investor sophistication across the institutional market, many of the region’s investors have been outward-looking by nature for many years, reflecting the diversification needs of investors in economies that tend to be marked by heavy weighting to a few sectors – such as industrials and finance in Sweden or seafood and hydrocarbons in Norway.
