A large exposure, and a long-term holding that we have highlighted before, is care company Ambea. Since the company has just completed its acquisition of Aleris and reported for 2018 alongside its sector colleagues Humana and Attendo, it feels natural to look forward to 2019 and the coming 2020s.

Catella AB – Year-end Report 2018

Since the third quarter of 2018, the Banking business area has been reported as a disposal group held for sale. Total income from remaining operations in the quarter was in line with the previous year, despite significantly lower variable earnings in Equity, Hedge and Fixed Income Funds and Property Investment Management, which emphasises Catella’s stable earnings platform. Assets under management increased by SEK 21.9 Bn in the year, with the acquisition of APAM contributing SEK 15.9 Bn, which increases Catella’s fixed earnings, although the main benefit is derived from increased opportunities to generate performance-based fees by creating value for our customers. Compared to the previous year, external and personnel expenses increased in the quarter, due to initiatives in Property Investment Management and Equity, Hedge and Fixed Income Funds. These proactive initiatives, in combination with significantly lower performance-based income, affected operating profit, which was down by 60% year-on-year.

Information regarding changes of portfolio management responsibility

Catella has during recent years gradually developed its portfolio management with increased focus on sustainability and absolute return strategies. The performance outcome in 2018 did not live up to our expectations and we are not satisfied, especially in the case of the fund Catella Nordic Long/Short Equity. Therefore, we will carry out a number of changes in our portfolio management by reallocating resources within the portfolio management team.
