Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Danske Bank has expanded its Alternative Investments team with the appointment of Christopher Tang (pictured) as Chief Investment Director. The bank’s Alternative Investments team manages a growing portfolio of investments within infrastructure, private equity and credit on behalf of Danske Bank and Danica.

“Exciting news! Yesterday I joined Danske Bank as Chief Investment Director in the Alternative Investments group, which covers Infrastructure, Private Equity and Credit investments on behalf of Danske Bank and Danica,” Tang wrote in a LinkedIn post earlier this week. As part of the role, Tang will also assume the responsibility for the infrastructure team. “After 3 months in the garden looking forward to this, I am super excited to get going,” wrote Tang. “The plans and ambitions for the group are high and so is the spirit for building a portfolio of super investments, both directly, with co-investors, and indirectly.”

Christopher Tang joins Danske Bank from Danish logistics company A.P. Moller – Maersk, where he served as Director of Group M&A and Strategy. He was responsible for merger and acquisitions (M&A) transactions and strategic investments. “Also, a big ‘thanks’ to all colleagues and partners I have worked with for the last 3 years at Maersk,” Tang wrote in the LinkedIn post. “It has been a privilege and a great experience – and nice with a number of successfully completed strategic acquisitions to top it off.”

Before joining A.P. Moller – Maersk, Tang worked as an associate focused on Nordic M&A advisory in Danske Bank’s corporate finance team for about a year and an additional four and a half years as an associate director within the same Danske Bank Corporate Finance team. He also worked as an analyst at Goldman Sachs in London and as an equity analyst at Gudme Raaschou Bank focusing on Danish small- and mid-cap stocks.
