Birgitta Hagenfeldt, CFO since 2008 and vice president since 2017, will leave her roles at the Swedish online broker Avanza in the summer next year, according to Swedish media.

"It has been an incredibly exciting time at Avanza, which is now completely different from when I started 12 years ago. Back then, Avanza had about 150,000 customers with SEK 48 billion in savings. We have now passed 1 million customers with 400 billion in savings and also won the SKI award for Sweden's most satisfied savings customers for ten consecutive years," says Birgitta Hagenfeldt in a press release sent to Swedish business media.

She has planned her departure so she will not have an operating role after she turns 60. Instead, she will spend more time with her family and pursue a career as a professional board member.
