IPM is being wound down.
IPM Informed Portfolio Management (“IPM”) was an investment management firm founded in Sweden in 1998, with the purpose of delivering robust investment strategies with a systematic investment process to institutional investors.
IPM had a long history as one of the leading systematic macro managers globally, running approximately $5.7 bn USD at peak for the flagship multi-asset systematic macro strategy with investors globally across Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. The strategy analyzed fundamental data from multiple perspectives to identify market opportunities and over time exhibited solid returns in line with leading managers in the sector, and with low correlation to traditional asset classes such as equities and bonds as well as to other alternative investment strategies.
The investment environment in the period between 2020 and 2021 was challenging for systematic macro as a strategy and IPM as a manager, with lacklustre performance and significant outflows. Considering the impact on IPM as a business and the capability to deliver in line with client expectations, IPM’s Board of Directors made the recommendation in April 2021 for the firm to cease all investment activities. From this date, IPM announced the firm would terminate investment activities and return capital to investors.
IPM was headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, but over the years IPM also held offices in London and New York as IPM’s global reach expanded. In addition to the flagship systematic macro strategy, IPM also ventured into Systematic Equities, managing $4.4 bn USD at peak in a smart beta long only equity strategy, as well as commodities and trend following strategies. IPM took pride in hiring high caliber individuals and looking after them through offering a stimulating and dynamic environment with the ambition to deliver robust and diversifying investment returns and excellent client service to our clients.
