Alecta is a risk-averse manager which aims to meet the requirements of long-term pension fund management, in terms of delivering a competitive return with prudent risk management. The firm's portfolio holdings consist of approximately 50 percent fixed income, 41 percent equities, and 9 percent real estate. The core of Alecta's philosophy is a competent independent in-house analysis, focusing on the absolute return and risks of their investments. They direct their investment activities mainly to areas where the firm have such in-house capability and expertise. By limiting the number of holdings, they facilitate an even deeper analysis whereby each specific analysis can have a significant impact on the firm's performance.

Xact works with several investment processes within passive fund management: physical optimization, physical replication and derivative-based fund management. However, a common factor shared by all of the processes is the use of a structured process to provide the highest likelihood that the fund management will deliver index returns to the customer based on the product's defined conditions. The process must be dynamic and under continual development to address changes in the functioning of the market. The investment process for each product requires the fund manager responsible for the portfolio to take a number of investment decisions. With each investment decision, the fund manager must ensure that the decision concurs with the objective, investment strategy and risk mandate for the fund/discretionary mandate concerned. Sustainability analysis is an integral part of the fund manager's investment analysis and impacts the investment decisions in Xact's fund management. Accordingly, an assessment is made of the company's position within sustainability for each holding. An analysis of all of the companies in the firm's portfolios is conducted regularly to identify those companies that do not conform to international standards for the environment, human rights, work conditions, anti-corruption and controversial weapons (so-called norm-based screening).
