Jon Sigurdsen

Jon Sigurdsen is lead portfolio manager at DNB Asset Management for long/short and long only renewable energy strategies. He has successfully run the renewable energy long/short part of Skandia Global Hedge fund since 2008, resulting in the creation of the DNB ECO Return series in 2010. Jon joined the firm in 2005 and prior to this, he was an equity analyst at Nordea Securities in Oslo specialising in IT, telecoms and media. He graduated from the Liverpool John Moores University with a BA in Business.

Objective

The fund has the ability to benefit from movements in the prices of equities either up or down. Specifically the fund takes long and short positions in equities of renewable energy companies anywhere in the world. Although the fund actually places most of its assets in high quality debt securities most of its performance is derived from its exposure to equities. The Investment Manager uses its own analysis to determine which equities appear most likely to rise in value and which appear most likely to fall. The Investment Manager then takes long positions on the former and short positions (using derivatives) on the latter.
