Commenting on the Fund’s performance in the first half, AP4’s CEO Mats Andersson says:

- Considering our previous weak performance, I am extremely pleased to report that our active management during the period produced a gain of almost SEK 1.5 billion, more than twice as much as the Fund’s interim goal of outperforming the index by an average of 0.4 percentage point annually. I am pleased that all management areas achieved gains.
