SEB creates an international sales team to support further growth among institutional investors. The team is a part of Asset Management Sales Denmark and, therefore, based in Copenhagen.
To lead International Sales, the asset manager has poached Bjarne Steden-Hirschorn from Danish competitor Nykredit Asset Management where he currently works as Senior Client Manager.
He formally becomes Head of International Sales on 1 May. To support Steden-Hirschon, SEB has hired Kevin Legind-German from Danish bank-owned asset manager Bankinvest and Peter Thiberg. Thiberg is recruited from SEB Markets.
According to SEB's Head of Financial Institutions Coverage, Peter Lauridsen, it has been important to gather a team with different competencies – both from sales and asset management in general.
