On September 3, 2010 the Carnegie group signed an agreement to acquire all shares in HQ Fonder Sverige AB. The acquisition was completed on September 22. Subsequently the acquisition has been approved by the Swedish Competition Authority (Konkurrensverket) and a change of name has been registered. From today, HQ Fonder Sverige AB is therefore called Carnegie Fonder AB. The individual funds will also shortly change name.
– Following the recent turbulence it feels secure that we are now a part of Carnegie. Carnegie is a strong owner that shares our long-term view of asset management. This means that we can continue to work as we always have done - with fundamental research in the search for undervalued securities, says Hans Hedström, Chairman, Carnegie Fonder.
