History

A fund firm created by investors - for investors

Great Dane Fund Advisors was founded in 2014 by two industrial family offices in Funen, Denmark, and former Sparinvest portfolio manager Thomas Bastrup.
In January 2015, Great Dane launched the Halberg-Gundersen Globale Aktier fund. It later changed its name to Great Dane Globale Aktier . Its philosophy is a deep value, bottom up, fundamental approach and it has been extremely style consistent over time.

In 2021 several ex Sparinvest leadership members joined Great Dane as portfolio managers and board members. We moved on to launch the global enhanced Index multifactor strategy INDEX+ and an European Value fund mirroring the proces and style of the 2015 Globale Aktier fund. 
Our 3 year plan is to grow our assets both domestically and internationally in order to prove that the economies of scale will automatically lower the TER of our funds to institutional levels as our assets under management grow.
