A fund management company shall, in accordance with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority’s (“SFSA”) binding rules for Fund Managers, strive to provide the best possible result when executing orders and/or placing orders with other parties on behalf of the fund. This includes Lysa Fonder’s obligation to take all sufficient steps to obtain the best possible result for each fund it manages, taking into account price, costs, speed, likelihood of execution and settlement, order size and narue and any other consideration relevant to the execution to the decision to deal.
These factors should be determined in relation to a number of fund and transaction specific criteria, including the funds investment and risk profile and the nature of the portfolio transaction.
Lysa Fonder has determined that when assessing the best execution in most cases the price and cost will be given a high importance. In certain cases the fund management company can however asess that other factors are of greater importance. This includes situations when the fund manager assesses that for example the size and nature of the order or other specific requirements can have a material impact on the price or likelihood of execution and settlement, or if there for other reasons are motivated to give greater importance to other factors than the price.

None of Lysa Fonder’s employees receive a variable remuneration.
Lysa Fonder is part of a company group (the “Lysa Group”) consisting of three companies; Lysa Group AB (the “Parent Company”), Lysa AB (“Lysa”) and Lysa Fonder. Lysa and Lysa Fonder are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Parent Company.
As Lysa Fonder is a fund management company we must have a formal remuneration policy. A remuneration policy aims to promote sound and efficient risk management and counteract excessive risk-taking. Somewhat simplified, this is done mainly by setting specific rules for how and when variable compensation and bonuses may be paid out. Lysa Fonder’s remuneration system must be in line with Lysa Fonder’s long term interests, encourage good performance and be able to maintain and attract competent employees.
Lysa Fonder’s remuneration policy has been adopted by the Board of Directors. Lysa Fonder applies individual salaries and does not pay bonuses. To be able to hire competent employees, the Lysa Group however offers stock options in the Parent Company.
In order to fulfill the regulatory requirements, we will annually review and update our remuneration policy. On a yearly basis we will also analyse and identify which employees that have a material impact on the company’s risk profile.
