Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Shortly after hiring the first non-founder employee, Danish asset manager Othania has further strengthened its team with the hiring of Alexander Bruun as Portfolio Manager. Bruun joins Vincent Dilling-Larsen and Christian Mørup-Larsen, the brothers who founded Othania Capital in early 2016, as well as recently hired Customer Manager Henrik Theis Jensen.

“We are very pleased to welcome Alexander Bruun as Portfolio Manager in Othania,” announces Othania on LinkedIn. In close cooperation with Vincent Dilling-Larsen, Bruun will focus on developing and optimizing Othania’s investment strategies, asset class analysis and risk management.

“We are very pleased to welcome Alexander Bruun as Portfolio Manager in Othania.”

Alexander Bruun joins Othania from Ørsted, where worked as a trader focusing on short-term power trading, carbon emissions trading, and model and strategy development. Bruun also has experience in hedging and trading commodities after working as a junior oil risk manager at Global Risk Management. He holds a master’s degree in Economics with a profile in Finance from the University of Southern Denmark.

“I look forward to becoming part of Othania and helping to continue to deliver growth,” Alexander Bruun comments on joining Othania. “This will be played out, inter alia, through the further development of the systematic approach to investment based on macroeconomic trends,” he continues. “I want to draw on my financial background as well as market and macro experience from the commodities industry.”

“I look forward to becoming part of Othania and helping to continue to deliver growth.”

Two of the three Othania funds, Othania Invest and Othania Etisk Formuevækst, rely on a systematic risk-on and risk-off approach to invest in equity and bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Othania also manages Othania Bæredygtig Makro, which invests in Othania’s own funds, other hedge funds and alternative investment funds from the Nordics, as well as exchange-traded funds offering exposure to different asset classes across the globe.
