Luxembourg-domiciled SEB Fund 5 – SEB Flexible Bond Fund SEK will merge with Sweden-domiciled SEB Obligationsfond Flexibel SEK

We plan to merge the Luxembourg-domiciled SEB Fund 5 – SEB Flexible Bond Fund SEK, the merging fund, with Sweden-domiciled SEB Obligationsfond Flexibel SEK, the receiving fund, as of 13 February 2023.

The merging sub-fund and the receiving fund have very similar investment objectives and policies, and they are managed by the same investment team within SEB Investment Management AB. We wish to merge the two funds to simplify SEB Investment Management AB’s selection of funds offered and to make fund management more efficient.

This is a merger by absorption whereby the merging sub-fund's holdings, including its assets and liabilities, will be transferred to the receiving fund and SEB Flexible Bond Fund SEK will cease to exist.
