Top strategist leaves Carnegie

He has done it before; left a prestigious and well-paid job to do some thinking about the next step. Now he does it again.

Frank Hvid Petersen, Head of Strategy & Portfolio Management at Carnegie, is leaving the bank, one of the leading Nordic investment banks, which also focuses on wealth management

Frank Hvid Petersen tells FWAM that he decided to quit himself:

"Yes I did; there is no drama in it; I'll be here until October 10 at the latest. It has been two and a half exciting years, when Carnegie has put more focus on wealth management; a fantastic, dedicated company to work for and a strong team has been built within wealth management. But now I'm up to something else. I haven't decided yet, but I do have many interests, and the ideas go many ways; several of those not necessarily within finance: I might teach again, write some more, work with children and young people, fintech, charity, politics..."


Frank Hvid Petersen is former Head of Strategy at Nordea Asset Management, a job he left three years ago. At that point he told FinansWatch that he left Nordea because he needed to do some thinking about the next step in his professional life. Maybe the time has come for that next step?

Before joining Nordea in 2002 he worked for Alfred Berg.
