This actively managed equity fund invests mainly in companies listed or traded in Russia or companies that derive at least 40 percent of their sales or profit from Russia. The fund may also invest in companies that are listed or traded on regulated markets in the Commonwealth of Independent States and countries in the surrounding region or which derive at least 40 percent of their sales or profits from one or several of the eligible countries mentioned in the fund's prospectus. Our fundamental investment process enables us to identify what we regard as undervalued, good quality companies that have a healthy growth potential and a skilled management team. Since the fund invests in securities that are issued in other currencies than the base currency of the fund the return may be affected by changes in the exchange rates.


The fund is managed by SEB’s Eastern European team, based in Tallinn, Estonia. Fund manager Pavel Lupandin (SEB Varahaldus A/S) is responsible for the fund’s ongoing strategy, portfolio construction and performance.
