London, 25 September 2020 – Style Analytics, the provider of factor-based portfolio and market analysis tools, has added several new asset owners/managers to its client base over the past 2 years in Scandinavia.
Style Analytics has secured a contract with Swedbank Robur, one of Scandinavia’s largest asset managers. Swedbank Robur offers savings products and discretionary investment management for private individuals, institutional clients, governments, universities, corporations, and labour unions.
In addition to Swedbank, Style Analytics is also now serving Handelsbanken Fonder AB, another of the largest banks in Sweden and the Nordic region that provides universal banking services; Första AP-fonden (AP1), who manages part of the capital in Sweden’s national income pension system with assets of SEK 355 billion; Nordea Investment Management, part of the Nordea Group, the largest financial services group in Northern Europe; and Keva, the Finnish pension agency responsible for pensions of 1.3 million public sector workers in state, municipal, and state church positions and has €35.8 billion in investments, just to name a few.*
AP1’s Majdi Chammas, Head of Equities within External Partnership and Innovation team, stated: “Unlike legacy technology and tool sets that fail to connect, engage or facilitate collaboration within investment firms, we were very pleased that Style Analytics provides a common language and creates a shared platform amongst multiple stakeholders to challenge existing strategies and explore new opportunities.”
Style Analytics’ vision is to transform the way in which funds are viewed by both institutional asset managers and pension foundations using innovative, cutting edge visuals to reveal the true DNA of a fund. Utilized by some of the largest asset management and asset owner organizations in the world, Style Analytics provides a powerful set of objective third-party views that deliver crucial insights to investment management teams.
Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of Style Analytics, remarked: “As the appetite continues to grow in Scandinavia, we are well equipped to be the premier provider for factor analysis. Our innovation lies on the principals that we bring transparency and causal identification of the drivers of returns to a broad audience, allowing many more to become successful investors.”
