Carnegie Fonder CEO is ready for Nordic consolidation

Something may be lost in Sweden’s revamped premium pension system, but Carnegie Fonder is still joining the battle to be part of it, Andreas Uller tells AMWatch.

The race is on. Fund companies in Sweden and abroad are keeping a close eye on the recently revamped selection process for the country’s multi-billion euro premium pension system. They all want their share of the cake. Independent fund manager Carnegie Fonder is not different in that respect.

And the company’s CEO, Andreas Uller, predicts that competition to be one of the selected few – or at least, fewer – fund companies on the premium pension platform will inevitably lead to more consolidation in the business.

“We’ve done some consolidations on a smaller scale at Carnegie Fonder over the years. And I clearly see that there’s going to be more to come in the market. Absolutely. And we are active in that market – not only in Sweden, in the Nordics,” Uller tells AMWatch in an interview.

The Swedish Fund Selection Agency (FTN Fondtorgsnämnden) was established last year as part of a major revamp of the country’s premium pension platform. It is tasked with selecting high quality funds for the system and will be launching a number of procurements over the next three years.

But while Uller and Carnegie Fonder are joining the race to have funds on for the platform, the CEO is also quite critical towards the new selection system – and concerned about its consequences for the Swedish fund management industry.

He believes the major international players will get a significant share of the cake in the new system, but that does not mean that he is arguing for a system that protects Swedish funds.

“I’m not into the protection stuff. I’m completely for an open market and everybody competing on equal terms. It’s not about that. What is important is that the premium pension system has been a real success. It’s a small portion of your pension, but it has created a lot of value. It’s a very democratic way of saving.”
