Close proximity to executive management is an advantage for Rasmus Lind 

Job change: Pension company Industriens Pension has appointed Rasmus Lind as new Equity Portfolio Manager from Jan. 1 2017. Here he recounts why he made the leap from Gudme Raaschou.

Who: Rasmus Lind, 32

What: Equity Portfolio Manager, MA in political science

Where: Shifted from Gudme Raaschou AM to Industriens Pension on Jan. 1 2017

When:  After a good dialogue with Industriens Pension, I made the decision to transfer at the end of October last year.

Why:  I chose to shift to Industriens Pension, because after 8 years in Gudme Raaschou, five of those as portfolio manager, I found that it was time to try something new and pursue new challenges. Industriens Pension has a good reputation as an employer, and as such appeared as an attractive organization to join. I can now confirm that that is indeed the case.

How: With my experience as portfolio manager for foreign equity at Gudme Raaschou AM, I can strengthen Industriens Pension's internal share management, and particularly European shares.

Whether: ... Industriens Pension stands out from their competitors? Industriens Pension is one of Denmark’s youngest and most successful pension companies, and it's a company in growth. At the same time the company has a good size. We manage DKK 150 billion, and we are approx. 25 employees in the investment field. All in all, approx. 180 are employed here. So there's a critical mass while there's also plenty of work space with short decision-making processes and a short distance to top management.

Which: … three things are important to you when choosing a workplace? Competent and enthusiastic colleagues, exciting challenges, and responsibility.
