Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Gilles Lafleuriel, the Head of Real Assets and Alternatives within Nordea Asset Management’s manager selection team, joined real estate and infrastructure-focused investment and asset management company Obligo as Partner and Head of Sweden on January 10. His role involves the development of Obligo’s direct infrastructure investment practice, focusing on climate impact investments in Sweden.

“After a few years at Nordea Asset Management, one of the largest European asset managers, I am just as much thrilled to join Obligo, a fast-growing company with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and the right values, including a focus on infrastructure assets contributing to climate change mitigation,” Gilles Lafleuriel (pictured) comments on joining Obligo. Obligo Group is a Nordic asset manager primarily focused on infrastructure and real estate with about SEK 16 billion in committed capital under management. Lafleuriel will be based out of Obligo’s Stockholm office.
