Charlotta Faxén was born in Anderstorp, Sweden in 1976 and attended the Växjö University between 1995-2000 and the University of Saarlandes Saarbrücken in 1998. She holds an MSc in economics and business administration. Charlotta has been with Carnegie Asset Management since 2000 and has been a fund manager for four years. She currently manages the Carnegie Småbolag fund where she invests in companies and not in industry sectors which means that the fund's management is characterised by extensive analysis work and many visits to companies. Outside of fund management, Charlotta lists jogging, soccer, music and going to the cinema and theatre as her main interests.
The fund is an actively managed equity fund that primarily invests in the Swedish stock market but also in other Nordic countries. The fund is a special fund which means it has an opportunity to concentrate holdings to a smaller number of companies than a traditional equity fund and the ability to place up to 25% in fixed income securities.
