Scandinavian Credit Fund I (publ)
The Fund's business concept is to provide short-term direct lending to small and medium-sized companies. The fund intends to offer investors who are interested in the fund's investment strategy to subscribe for profit share loans. Investors in the Profit Sharing Loans can be private individuals, companies or professional investors.
The fact that most investment options in the market are adapted to the needs of the normal saver have resulted in several interesting investment opportunities being in practice excluded from the market for private investors, among other things due to high demands on minimum investment amounts and lock-in effects. The Fund's ambition is therefore to create accessibility by listing the Profit Sharing Loans in a regulated market, NGM-NDX.
The fund intends to offer direct lending to achieve the target, which is a high risk-adjusted return with little or no correlation to equity, bond and commodity markets. The Fund will use derivatives to manage unwanted market risks that may arise when investing in various instruments and to increase the Fund's return. The fund also intends to hedge the investments made in currencies other than the Swedish krona
The Fund's overall goal is to create long-term value growth for investors that corresponds to, or is better than, 6-10 percent per year with low volatility.
The Fund considers that the potential of the product is great in light of the high demand for short- and medium-term loans and loans to companies and continued caution from other players when it comes to providing corresponding loans and loans.
After this first issue of Profit Sharing Loans, four issues per year will be completed at the beginning of each quarter. At each issue, the fund will be open for redemption. In addition, trading takes place via the NGM-NDX marketplace through the Fund's Market Maker.
The Fund's strategic goal is to increase the borrowed capital to SEK 3,000,000 over a three to five year period.
Newly issued Vinstandell loans are expected to be admitted to trading on NDX during November 2015. The company has employed Mangold Fondkommission AB as a liquidity guarantor for the Vinstandels loans. Full terms and conditions for the Offer are set out in the Prospectus drawn up by the Company and approved by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority on August 28, 2015.
In connection with the preparation of the Offer, SFM Stockholm AB has been engaged as AIF manager. Mangold Fondkommission AB has been hired as an issuer. PG Magnusson Advokatbyrå AB has been hired as legal advisor. Depository is Danske Bank A / S, Denmark, Sweden Branch. Auditor is active at PwC.
