Skandia European Best Ideas Fund reaches EUR200m under management

RELATED TOPICS​

Skandia’s European Best Ideas Fund has passed the EUR200m milestone just four months after hitting EUR100m on its first anniversary.

The fund reached EUR100m in April – a year after launch. However, it has already doubled in size to EUR200m just four months later as renewed confidence in equities is felt across Europe.

In total, Skandia’s five best ideas funds have generated nearly EUR800m under management in just over three years since the launch of the first fund – Skandia Global Best Ideas Fund – in June 2006.

European Best Ideas is available to Skandia’s retail and institutional investors in Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, France, Finland, Spain, Norway and Germany. It is also available via Skandia International’s offshore products in more than 20 countries around the world.

SIG is currently seeking regulatory approval for the fund to be sold in the UK as well as Colombia, Mexico, and Chile.

Rob Williams (pictured), business development director of Skandia Investment Group, says: “We’re really pleased at how popular this fund has become with a wide range of investors. It’s also gratifying to note how transportable the ‘best Ideas’ concept is proving to be around the world. SIG was established to offer high quality investment solutions to global as well as local audiences and EBI is a good example of us having done that.

“Best Ideas works because it is simple to understand yet offers investors access to some of the world’s best fund managers. Investors like the fact that their money is being put into stocks that these leading fund managers have the conviction to invest in themselves. We are encouraged to see how popular this fund is proving to be, especially over a period of unprecedented stock market volatility.”
