Danske’s Lars Thørs to discuss European Equities at Hamburg Summit
Lars Thørs (pictured), head of European Equities at Danske Invest will discuss investing in equities in a low rate environment at the InvestmentEurope Pan European Fund Selector Summit held in Hamburg on 28-30 September.
Thørs will discuss the double challenge facing European investors, with interest rates at historically low levels and growing pressures to move up the risk curve. He will argue that the group’s fundamental bottom-up research combined with a defensive quality and high dividend yield focus offers an attractive strategy going forward.
Thørs is responsible for the strategy and asset management of European and Global equities at Danske Invest. The department consists of 16 portfolio managers and analysts and has more than €8.5m under management.
He has more than 30 years of experience with investment banking, investment management, life & pension and risk management in the investment industry. Before joining Danske Invest in 2015, he worked 5 years as head of risk assets at Danica Pension. Previously he held leading positions as executive director & head of group treasury at Saxo Bank, vice president & head of equities at PFA Pension and senior portfolio manager in Nordea Treasury.
