Swedbank Robur appoints new CEO
Tomas Hedberg will take over as chief executive of Swedbank Robur, Sweden’s biggest asset manager, by 28 January.
The appointment means a step up for Hedberg (pictured), who currently is head of interest rate and currency trading at Large Corporates & Institutions, Swedbank.
Swedbank Robur, the wholly owned subsidiary asset management business, estimates that a third of Swedes invest in one or more of its funds.
Hedberg said: “I now look forward to continue simplifying and clarifying our customer offerings, together with Swedbank Robur’s talented staff and at the same time take an active part in forming Swedbank’s offerings within the savings area.”
Marianne Nilsson, acting CEO since May 2012, will continue as deputy CEO and be responsible for ownership issues at Swedbank Robur.
