SKAGEN Insight to close
SKAGEN has decided to close the shadow activist equity fund SKAGEN Insight. The liquidation will be effective from 23 January 2020.
SKAGEN Insight was established in September 2017, offering investment in a portfolio of companies exposed to activist campaigns globally. While the validity of such a strategy still holds, SKAGEN Insight has not attracted sufficient assets* as the narrow mandate has proven challenging to sell and the fund appears to have limited prospects of reaching a sustainable size. SKAGEN therefore believes that closing the fund is in the best long-term interests of clients.
The Norwegian FSA has approved the liquidation, information has been sent to unit holders and trading in the fund has been suspended.

*As of 10 January 2020, SKAGEN Insight had EUR 20 million in assets under management.
