"For some time, our customers have been requesting funds with higher risk and particularly with a global focus," says Jan Palmberg, Head of SEB Funds. "Accordingly, we chose to start a new fund within the chance/risk family. SEB Global Chance/Risk will be the sixth fund in this category."
The fund can invest in various industries and is not tied to any specific geographical region. This provides the possibility for the fund to invest in those industries with the best value growth. The manager is Johan Holmsved, who is based in London.
The SEB Global Chance/Risk fund will be sold in Sweden, Norway and Finland, with a management fee of 1.75 percent.
SEB has previously offered five funds with higher risk in the chance/risk family:
Nordamerika Chans/Riskfond, Sverige Chans/Riskfond, Sverige Småbolag Chans/Riskfond, SEB Lux C S - Europe Chans/Risk och SEB Lux Equity Fund - Japan Chans/Risk.
