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.”

Valtteri Ahti joined Evli from Danske Bank, where he served as Head of Research and Chief Strategist focused on Macro, Fixed Income and Foreign Exchange at Danske Bank’s Markets department in Helsinki. Prior to joining Danske Bank in November 2017, Ahti worked at Evli for a little more than six years as Chief Economist and Strategist. He also worked at Helsinki-based alternative money manager AIM Capital for one and a half years, where he focused on external hedge fund manager selection, with a focus on the systematic, global macro, relative value fixed income and commodities space.

“Valtteri is one of the top experts in his field, but he is also a prominent and charismatic personality. His expertise as an economist and strategist is undeniable in the financial sector.”

Welcome back, Valtteri!”
