Matrix Investment Services, the Nordic representative of London-based hedge fund managers Coronation Fund Managers, has appointed a new partner.
Mans Claeson is the latest addition to the Stockholm-based firm, which was established in 2002 and markets alternative investment products to institutional clients throughout the Nordic region.
"We are delighted to welcome Måns to our distribution network and are looking forward to working closely with him and Kjell Lilliequist of Matrix in addressing the needs of institutional investors in the Nordic region, the third largest pensions market after the UK and the Netherlands," said Ramona Glass, head of product development and client service at Coronation Fund Managers. "Their combined proven track record, experience and long-standing relationships in the region make Matrix a powerful regional resource for Coronation."
Claeson spent five years as managing director of Alcifor Alternative Advisors AB where he represented financial risk management (FRM), with responsibility for marketing their alternative products to Nordic institutional investors. Prior to founding Alcifor, Claeson, who has degree from the Stockholm School of Eonomics, spent six years at SEB Asset Management, holding various positions including CIO international equities and chief strategist.
"I am looking forward to working closely with Kjell and Coronation in developing high quality institutional relationships in the Nordic region," he said. "Local institutions are moving gradually from balanced to specialist products and are looking increasingly at high quality, non-domestic hedge funds. As an organisation with a clear investment philosophy; consistent risk-adjusted returns and diversified sector specific specialist products, we believe that Coronation's offer is timely for local institutional investors.
