Catella Småbolagsfond

Invests in Swedish small sized companies and focuses on finding undervalued companies. Genuine stock picking, in other words.

Fund manager comment

Macroeconomic data generally weakened during the month, but from high levels. The Federal Reserve left US policy rates unchanged and repeated its ambition of gradual rate hikes as the economy continues to develop well. At the beginning of May it became clear that Emmanuel Macron would be France’s new president. The market had already expected this, and the euro and European exchanges were strengthened by the news. Political uncertainty surrounding President Trump’s dismissal of FBI chief Comey has led to proposals for economic and political reforms, such as expanded infrastructure investment, being postponed.

Global stock exchanges continued to rise in May. Once again, Swedish small caps outperformed the larger companies. The Carnegie Small Cap Index was up 2.60 %. The fund was up by less, 0.62 %. The fund lost ground relative to the index, particularly from shares that have performed very well during the year but that corrected in May. The biggest negative contributors were Outotec, Troax and Gränges. The biggest positive contributor was Hansa Medical, which was up 39 % this month. This was partly due to positive news flow, but also an effect of the stock entering the SBX Index. Other shares that contributed positively were Lindab and the underweight in Intrum Justitia.

Risk indicator

The risk and reward indicator illustrates the link between risk and potential returns from an investment in the fund. The indicator is based on how the fund’s value has changed over the past five years. Category 1 does not mean that the fund is risk free. The fund may over time move towards the left or right of the scale. This is because the indicator is based on historical data which is not a guarantee of future risk and reward. For information about the risk classification of each fund, please refer to the fund’s key investor information document.
