Innovation & Novel Thinking
We want to do our part in strengthening the Nordic eco system for innovative companies. We want our investors to be able to participate in the value creation from more companies choosing the stock market as a platform for growth. Technology and innovation are core to solving challenges in sustainability, environment and social welfare. The Nordic innovation cluster is strong relative the overall size of the region, however fragile in a world of global competition.
We want to actively promote the stock market route for more successful entrepreneurs and companies. We will maintain our investment philosophy and modus operandi, but as independent fund managers we can become even more active in this effort. There are many clever technology investors around the globe, but our focus is to invest in technology and innovation with a Nordic perspective.
We believe that being an active investor who meets all the companies we invest in, have opinions and act a responsible manner are all key to sustainable value creation. Sound corporate governance has been an important cornerstone of Nordic companies’ ability to create shareholder value. As major shareholders in many smaller companies, we also have the opportunity to influence the companies through dialogue.
The purpose of our ownership policy is to safeguard the mutual interest of our unit holders and to promote long-term healthy value creation in the companies we invest in. The quality of the board of directors is important for the company’s future development. We therefore participate in nomination committees and prepare proposals for board members in the companies where the fund is among the largest owners. In addition to the nomination committee work, we exercise our ownership influence at meetings of companies where the fund is a major shareholder.

Information on the Swedish Act of Advisory
On July 1, 2004, a new law (2003: 862) was introduced on financial advisory services, the so-called advisory law. Because of the new law, it is important for all unit holders and all potential savers to know about TIN Fonder’s position on this issue. The main task of TIN Fonder is to be an active fund manager. Our funds are mainly marketed to private individuals, legal persons and institutions. This means that financial advice is not within the scope of TIN Fonder’s operations. Therefore, we will not document customer meetings or record our customer calls, which is a requirement for financial advice. It is important that our unit owners understand that our information is of a more general nature and should be seen as marketing, not advice.
