Luxembourg-domiciled SEB Fund 1 – SEB Norway Focus Fund to merge with Sweden-domiciled SEB Nordenfond

The merger is a part of SEB Investment Management AB’s (the management company) aim to centralise and optimise its fund administration activities and portfolio management. As part of this goal, we have decided to merge the Luxembourg-domiciled SEB Fund 1   ̶ SEB Norway Focus Fund, the merging sub-fund, with Sweden-domiciled SEB Nordenfond, the receiving fund, as of 12 June 2023. 

We wish to merge the two funds to sharpen SEB Investment Management AB’s selection of funds offered and to make fund management more efficient. 

How you as a unitholder are affected  

 The Sweden-domiciled Nordenfond will be the receiving fund in this merger. This is a merger by absorption whereby the merging sub-fund's holdings will be transferred to the receiving fund, and SEB Fund 1   ̶ SEB Norway Focus Fund will cease to exist.  

You are not required to act, but we think you as an investor should be familiar with the merger. As an investor in the merging sub-fund, your units will transfer to the receiving fund, and you will become a unitholder in the Sweden-domiciled SEB Nordenfond after the merger is completed. The receiving fund will continue to follow the same investment objective and strategy as previously, and the fund’s fees will not be affected.
