Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Northern Trust Asset Management has appointed Alexandra Kovalenko (pictured) as the new head of the Nordic Region to replace Erik Norland, who joined V-Square Quantitative Management this summer after 11 years on this role. Kovalenko, who joined Northern Trust in 2017 and later joined its asset management arm in 2019, has been appointed as head of its Swedish branch responsible for leading sales across the Nordic region.

“At Northern Trust Asset Management, we believe investors should be compensated for the risks they take – in all market environments and any investment strategy,” says Marie Dzanis, head of NTAM for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “We’re seeing continued demand from investors across the Nordic region for sustainable investing solutions, particularly within our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) quantitative active strategies and ETF funds,” she continues. “Through Alexandra’s leadership, expertise and local experience, we will be well placed to support our Nordic clients in achieving their investment goals.”
