SEB has found a new head of equity sales for professional investors in London, AMWatch has been informed. The financial group picked 36-year-old Jonatan Azoulay Pedersen, who has worked at Credit Suisse in London for about 11 years in global equities sales to London-based and Nordic institutional investors. The hiring is part of a larger jobs reshuffle that began in February when Nasdaq Copenhagen hired Nikolaj Kosakewitsch as its new president and successor to Bjørn Sibbern, who now works at Nasdaq's New York headquarters.
Kosakewitsch, who was formerly an institutional equity seller at SEB for several years, left his job as head of equities at investment bank Carnegie on June 1 this year. This made Carnegie look to SEB for a replacement, and Erik Schødt was brought in to replace Kosakewitsch. This left another empty seat at SEB, and tgus Søren Samsøe was chosen as head of equities at SEB in Denmark. However, as Søren Samsøe has a background in analysis, SEB needed another person with experience in sales to institutional investors. And that is what SEB just succeeded in.
