Protean Funds Scandinavia AB

Protean Select

Strategy Description

Protean Select is a long-biased equity hedge fund focusing on the Nordic markets. Over time, the fund will maintain positive net exposure to the Nordic stock market and a predominance of small and medium-sized companies. The fund may short, either via negative exposure to indices and individual financial instruments. Protean Select does not follow any index, but the goal is to generate a good long-term absolute return regardless of market climate, normally with a lower standard deviation than a broad Nordic equity index. The investment strategy involves identifying investment situations with an asymmetric risk-return profile. The portfolio managers base their assessments on fundamental analysis, meetings with company representatives, external analysis, suppliers, market climate and ownership structure analysis, among others.
