Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Global investment manager Invesco is expanding its Nordic team based out of Stockholm with two new additions. Elin Lilja-Wainwright, formerly Marketing and Communications Manager at Norron Asset Management, has joined Invesco this month as Marketing Manager for the Nordic region. Anna Mellström, previously at Danske Bank, joined as Relationship Manager responsible for Nordic clients.

“I am delighted that our strong business growth has allowed us to expand our local resources.”

The two fresh additions to Invesco’s Nordic team follow the appointment of Fredrik Nilsson as head of ETF business development for the Nordic region at the end of last year. “I am delighted that our strong business growth has allowed us to expand our local resources,” Stefan Behring, Invesco’s Head of Nordic Region, comments in a press release. “With Fredrik, Anna and Elin onboard we have considerably increased our Nordic presence. These strategic hires respond to a growing demand and will strengthen our regional foothold which will allow us to better serve our local clients.”
