Prime Brokerage

Optimising opportunities, minimising risks

With more than 25 years experience as a Prime Broker, SEB Prime Brokerage is a clear leader in the Nordic region and number five in Europe as a whole, with a local presence in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the UK and the USA.

SEB provides a comprehensive service to money 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 and services consisting of Execution, Financing, Structured Products, Advisory and Prime Brokerage Services. Our goal is to assist our hedge fund clients to perform, to optimise opportunities and to minimise risk.

Our Prime Brokerage Services are tailored to our clients' specific requirements with all areas of the bank working closely together to consolidate transactions and accounts into one system. Our team provides a dedicated service for funds with an event driven or equity arbitrage focus and we aim to ensure that you stay ahead of your competitors.

You'll receive a clear view of all your positions and exposures as well as real time reporting from 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 on SEB.

Through our advisory service, we can support you on everything from starting your fund to monitoring and managing the risks. Our highly ranked Capital Introduction Service aims to connect our hedge fund clients with our broad range of Nordic and international investors. Our annual Nordic Hedge Fund Investor Survey provides in depth knowledge about hedge fund investors.
