- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Following the departure of several key employees from Catella, among those the lead portfolio manager of Catella Hedgefond Ulf Strömsten and his colleagues Mikael Hanell and Magnus Nilsson, heading for  a new fund company set up by Altor and Carnegie, the Swedish asset manager has been busy over the summer filling up the empty chairs.

In July already Catella had recruited two senior portfolio managers to its hedge fund team. The new additions are Martin Jonsson and Anders Wennberg who join from the Zenit fund, a fund that Brummer & Partners decided to close by the end of February this year.

Catella now announced, it was successful in also being able to recruit a new team covering fixed income strategies for both the company’s existing pure fixed-income products and the elements of interest-bearing investments in Catella Hedgefond.

“We are pleased and proud to be able to announce Thomas Elofsson and Stefan Wigstrand as new senior portfolio managers at Catella. Catella has very high ambitions for its fund management and, through earlier recruitment, has secured a very strong equities team. The recruitment of Thomas Elofsson and Stefan Wigstrand means that we now also have a very strong team in fixed income,” says Erik Kjellgren, head of the Swedish fund operations.

Thomas Elofsson will be joining Catella coming from Skandia, where he was head of Investment Strategy within Skandia Investment Management (SIM), deputy CEO and a member of the SIM senior management team. In his role he was responsible for the portfolio management team in fixed-income investments, foreign exchange, credit, tactical allocation and balanced- and fixed-income funds.

Stefan Wigstrand also joins Cateall from Skandia, where as senior portfolio manager within Skandia Investment Management he was responsible for the management of Skandia Liv’s credit mandate, institutional credit fund Thule Credit Fund, and the credit mandates of Skandia Fonder’s balanced funds.

Thomas Elofsson and Stefan Wigstrand will take up their respective positions on 5 September 2016.
