PineBridge Investments (PineBridge), a global asset manager focused on active, high conviction investing, has appointed Viggo Johansen as Head of Nordics. He will be based in the firm’s new office in Stockholm, Sweden which is due to open soon.

Johansen will be responsible for PineBridge’s sales and distribution strategy in the region, with a focus on expanding the firm’s share of the institutional investment market.

We are pleased to welcome Viggo on board and believe his track record and expertise will help us deliver the best solutions for our clients.”
