Discretionary management of equities has been part of SEB's offering for a long time. Based on our Nordic heritage we've developed our equity management capabilities to have global reach and we now invest in most markets around the world.

Our equity management is characterized by in-depth fundamental analysis combined with sophisticated and modern methods. The investment teams use both traditional stock picking processes and quantitative processes for our various products but they all share common investment beliefs and core values. The basis for all our investment processes is what we consider to be clear value drivers over longer time.

The awareness of how the investment management industry can and must take a clearer standpoint when it comes to sustainability issues has increased a lot in recent years. We strive to have inclusion of ESG factors and aspects in all our investment processes.
