Scandinavian Credit Fund I (publ)
The fund's business concept is to conduct short-term direct lending to small and medium-sized companies. The fund intends to offer investors who are interested in the fund's investment strategy to sign up for Profit Share Loans. Investors in Vinstandelslån can be private individuals, companies and foundations.
The fact that most investment options in the market are adapted to the needs of the normal saver has led to several interesting investment opportunities being in practice excluded from the market for private investors, due, among other things, to high requirements for minimum investment amounts and lock-in effects. The fund's ambition is therefore to create accessibility by listing the Vinstandelslån on a regulated market, NGM-NDX (Since 2020-05-04 renamed to Main Regulated).
The fund intends to offer direct lending to achieve the goal of a high risk-adjusted return with low or no correlation to stock, bond and commodity markets. The fund will use derivatives to manage unwanted market risks that may arise when investing in various instruments and to increase the fund's return. The fund also intends to hedge investments made in currencies other than the Swedish krona
The fund's overall goal is to create long-term value growth for the investors that is equal to, or better than, 6-10 percent per year with low volatility.

The fund assesses that the potential of the product is great against the background of great demand for short- and medium-term loans and credits to companies, as well as continued caution from other players when it comes to providing corresponding credits and loans.
After this first issue of Vinstandelslån, four issues per year will be carried out at the beginning of each quarter. At each issue, the fund will be open for redemption. In addition, trading takes place via the market place NGM-NDX (Since 2020-05-04 renamed to Main Regulated) through the fund's Market Maker.
The fund's strategic goal is to increase the loaned capital to SEK 3,000,000,000 over a three to five year period.
The newly issued capital share certificates are expected to be admitted to trading on NDX during October 2015 (Since 2020-05-04 renamed to Main Regulated). The company has engaged Mangold Fondkommission AB as liquidity guarantor for the Vinstandelslån.
