Swedish Church pension fund adds private equity in “uncertain world”

Carl Cederberg, CEO of Kyrkanspensionskassa, the Swedish Church Pension fund, says low interest rates mean it must take risks, so the fund is now adding alternative investments, such as unlisted shares, real estate and infrastructure to its asset mix. The fact the fund has a high level of reserves makes it possible to invest in less liquid assets, he says.

Kyrkanspensionskassa, the Swedish Church Pension fund, has now signed a new contract to invest in a private equity fund, as part of the gradual shift towards alternative investments the institutional investor has embarked on.

Carl Cederberg, chief executive of Kyrkanspensionskassa told AMWatch: “We have already signed a contract for one PE-fund and decided to sign for one more. It is not for the first time as we already have a small private equity investment via Alder but we are expanding it.”
