About us

History
Granit Fonder was founded in 2010 and is a regulated Swedish fund management company. In December 2010 the company launched a Chinese equity fund (Granit Kina 130/30) and two Swedish equity funds – one large cap equity fund (Granit Sverige 130/30) and one small cap equity fund (Granit Småbolag).

Philosophy
We aim to be a fully independent fund management company with transparent solutions that are easy to understand. The financial industry is demonstrating a great deal of innovation when it comes to constantly re-packing investment solutions to gain further market shares, but still what counts in the end of the day is performance. Buying and selling the right assets at the right time. That’s what active management is all about. That’s why we focus on investing in assets and markets where we believe there is the good chance of long-term and consistent growth opportunities. We do through active asset management. Combining a long-term thinking with an active management approach – that’s our philosophy.
