Former Swedish PM becomes senior adviser at Max Matthiessen

Max Matthiesen, the Swedish advisory business that also engages in fund selection activities, has appointed former prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt as a member of its board, as well as a senior adviser in the group.

The appointment means that Reinfeldt will take part in the work to develop Max Matthiessen alongside its main owner Willis Towers Watson. Other matters he will be involved with include the digitalisation of the advisory services, alongside a broadening of the customer offering.

“I have done a number of jobs for Max Matthiessen in recent years, which have given something to both parties. We have therefore decided to take these activities a step further and formalise the cooperation,” Reinfeldt said.

“Questions around insurance, health and pensions going forward are highly relevant to society and the interplay between politics, companies and individuals is considerable. These are pressing questions about the future for Swedish companies and their staff. I look forward to contributing to the work to develop Max Matthiessen’s business to meet future needs.”

Currently, Max Matthiessen has some 1,250 staff across the Nordic region, and together with Willis Towers Watson counts some 40,000 globally.
