STOCKHOLM, 04 March 2020 — C8 Technologies and SEB, the leading Nordic investment bank, today announced a collaboration to provide innovative ways for asset managers and owners to track and trade SEB Indices, hosted on the C8 platform. With C8, an institution takes control of their investments by trading the underlying assets themselves, at a lower cost, with their own broker.
With C8’s platform, it is straightforward for asset managers and owners to track their chosen SEB Index by trading the underlying instruments, using C8X, C8’s proprietary execution platform.
The asset manager or owner can take advantage of the flexibility of direct indexing to support their investment process or regulatory requirements. They keep full control of their capital and own the underlying assets, providing full transparency and less liquidity risk.
“The SEB tie-up adds a new dimension to the C8 platform, with their wide range of quant-driven solutions” says Mattias Eriksson, CEO of C8 Technologies. “In particular, their strong footprint in Sustainable solutions is ideal for our platform, which offers full transparency of the underlying assets. The output from their large and experienced Quantitative Group is a perfect fit for the C8 Platform”.
