Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Helen Idenstedt of Första AP-fonden (AP1) is one of the founding members of the newly-established Global Investor Board (GIB), created by the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) to strengthen engagement with the investment community. The board, comprised of senior leaders at global institutional investors, will serve as an advisory body to channel the ideas of the allocator community back to participants in the alternative asset management industry.

“I am both happy and proud to be part of AIMA’s (Alternative Investment Management Association) new Global Investor Board (GIB),” comments Helen Idenstedt, Head of External Partnerships and Innovation at Swedish pension fund Första AP-fonden (AP1). “AIMA has an important mission where the GIB will be able to make a positive contribution as an advisory body to asset managers in alternative investments regarding, for example, investors’ different risk-return preferences, needs related to ESG integration or the development of the due diligence process in a pandemic.”

The founding members will invite new directors to join the Global Investor Board (GIB) in the early part of 2022. The mission of the GIB is to serve as an advisory body to channel the ideas of the allocator community back to alternative asset managers so that they can continue to evolve and meet the changing needs of investors. Initial topics of priority identified by the GIB include ESG (including diversity, equity, and inclusion) integration, overcoming the challenges of in-person/virtual meetings in a pandemic-constrained environment, strategic relationships between GPs and LPs, and the role of alternatives in a total fund portfolio.

“I am delighted to have such a stellar group of global institutional investors be the founding members of this new important industry initiative.”
