Alexander Jansson has been appointed as chief executive officer of CB Asset Management (CB Fonder).
Outgoing CEO Carl Bernadotte, founder and owner of CB Fonder, will remain in his role as portfolio manager.
“It feels good to hand over the reins internally to Alexander, who is familiar with the company, our clients and the portfolio management,” says Bernadotte. “Alexander has the right qualities to manage and manoeuvre in an increasingly complex financial market that will continue to face major changes. To continue the work with the portfolio management together with Alexander and Marcus [Grimfors] feels very inspiring.”
Jansson has been employed as a portfolio manager at CB Fonder since 2009. Prior to that he worked in private equity. In addition to his role as CEO, he will continue his work as a portfolio manager.
“I am very honoured by the trust Carl, as the company's owner, and the board has given me and look forward to developing the company together with Carl and our colleagues,” says Jansson. “The company is in an interesting phase with strong AUM growth; good performance over time, and a tailwind for our core investment themes: Europe and the environmental sector. I see us as well positioned in an industry where cost consciousness and an active and ethical management are crucial for the customer.”
