Sweden has a rich history of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Our small country, tucked away in northern Europe, has throughout the years nurtured a multitude of internationally recognized companies. The common denominator for all these companies is that they once started their journeys as small companies. Via Simplicity Småbolag Sverige we want to offer investors an opportunity to invest in the next Swedish success story. The fund is suitable for those who believe in Swedish innovation and entrepreneurship. Many smaller Swedish companies today are so called “born globals”, which means that they early on have an international presence, combined with tehnological advancements and cross border co-operation. Small cap companies have a higher expected return compared to large cap companies, but are often times harder to analyze and are more volatile than large cap companies, given a larger part of their market cap is attributable to future growth and expectations. Simplicity Småbolag Sverige is a good alternative for investors seeking higher returns whilst at the same time accept the increased risk compared to a standard Swedish equity fund.

Risk management is a central part of Simplicity’s management process and it is therefore important that sustainability risks are considered and monitored just like other types of risks. Simplicity Småbolag Sverige is a fund that promotes environmental and social characteristics. The fund does not invest in companies that produce or distribute weapons, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography, and fossil fuels. The fund also does not invest in companies that systematically violate international standards.

To measure and monitor the environmental and social impact, Simplicity has access to several different methods, services, and data sources. The fund has documented investment and sustainability processes that the managers follow. The managers have access to several different data sources, including Bloomberg and Sustainalytics. The fund’s holdings are regularly screened with the help of Sustainalytics. The person responsible for Simplicity’s risk function audits, independently of the managers, that the fund complies with established criteria.
