Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Valtteri Ahti has rejoined Finnish asset manager Evli as Chief Strategist after almost four years as Head of Research and Chief Strategist at Danske Bank in Finland. Ahti previously worked at Evli from 2011 to 2017 and rejoined Evli at the beginning of August.

“I’m overjoyed to rejoin old friends in Evli! I’m also honoured to join what is a premier asset management house with an exceptional investment track record,” Ahti writes in a LinkedIn post. “In my role as chief strategist I will participate in tactical and strategic asset allocation, as well as continue the public discourse on international and domestic economic and financial affairs,” he continues. “Asset allocation is not only intriguing due to its dynamic and multifaceted nature, but also critical in determining portfolio returns.”
