AP3, the third Swedish national pension fund, one of five buffer funds within the Swedish national pension system, has selected SuperDerivatives' award-winning market data, DataX, for investment analysis and valuation.
AP3 is tasked by the Swedish Parliament with generating maximum possible benefit for the income pension system by managing the fund capital in order to deliver strong investment returns at a low level of risk. AP3 has twin roles in the pension system - serving as a buffer when inflows and outflows cause imbalance in the system, and promoting the overall financial stability of the system.
