Our sole business is fund management, and we do all analysis ourselves. We dare to take unpopular choices, as long as they are in the best client interests. We are aligned with our clients – when we do well, clients do well.

Our objective is to become the world's best fund manager in terms of risk-adjusted returns, communication and service.

Why choose SKAGEN?

The SKAGEN story 

We believe that investing responsibly is essential to achieve the best possible risk-adjusted returns for our unit holders over time.

Sustainability factors are often a signal of management quality, particularly over the long term. Our portfolio managers thus actively integrate environmental, social and corporate governance issues into the investment process.

One of the ways in which we actively promote our values is by supporting long-term social sponsorship work.

Sponsorship work is important to create commitment and a sense of community across countries, languages and cultures. It also strengthens engagement and our values among our employees.
