Optimising opportunities, minimising risks

With more than 30 years’ experience as a Prime Broker and financing partner, SEB Prime Brokerage is a clear leader in the Nordic region and one of the top European providers, with a presence across the Nordics, the UK, Hong Kong and the USA.


SEB provides a comprehensive service to managers with an absolute return focus that covers all strategies, structures and geographies. Our aim is to help our hedge fund clients to benefit from the strength and expertise of SEB’s global offering and resources.

We provide our clients with a co-ordinated offering across Financing, Execution, Structured Products, Advisory and Prime Brokerage. Our goal is to assist our hedge fund clients to perform, optimise opportunities and to minimise risks.

Our Prime Brokerage and Financing services are tailored to our clients’ specific requirements with all areas of the bank working closely together to deliver a seamless and transparent product.

As an SEB Prime Brokerage client you will receive a clear view of all your positions and exposures as well as real time reporting from over 80 markets. A point of difference appreciated by many investors is that our clients' holdings in securities and other financial instruments are posted on segregated accounts, which minimises counterparty risk.

Through our comprehensive offering, we can support you on everything from starting your fund to monitoring and managing risk. Our highly ranked Capital Introduction service is committed to connecting our hedge fund clients with our broad investor base. Our annual Nordic Hedge Fund Investor Survey provides in depth knowledge about hedge fund investors.
