Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Copenhagen-based alternative asset manager Qblue Balanced, founded by ATP’s former chief investment officer Bjarne Graven Larsen, has hired Larsen’s successor at ATP, Henrik Gade Jepsen, as Senior Advisor. Jepsen most recently worked as the Head of Asset Management at Danske Bank after he departed from Danish pension fund ATP in 2016.

“Qblue Balanced is very pleased to welcome Henrik Gade Jepsen to our team as Senior Advisor,” Qblue Balanced announces on LinkedIn. Qblue Balanced was co-founded in 2018 by Bjarne Graven Larsen, former chief investment officer at Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and Danish pension fund ATP, and a six-member team mostly comprised of former investment professionals from ATP.

“Qblue Balanced is very pleased to welcome Henrik Gade Jepsen to our team as Senior Advisor.”

Jepsen worked for 17 years at ATP as a colleague to the entire investment team at Qblue Balanced. He served as ATP’s chief investment officer and executive board member starting in 2011 until his departure to Danske Bank in 2016, where he served as Head of Asset Management for four years. Jepsen also held positions at Realkredit Danmark, Denmark’s largest mortgage bank, at the International Monetary Fund in Washington, D.C., and Denmark’s Central Bank.

“I am extremely happy about the opportunity to work with Henrik again. He is one of the most savvy and knowledgeable investment individuals I have ever worked with.”

“I am extremely happy about the opportunity to work with Henrik again,” Bjarne Graven Larsen, CEO at Qblue Balanced, comments on Henrik Gade Jepsen joining as Senior Advisor. “He is one of the most savvy and knowledgeable investment individuals I have ever worked with,” Larsen continues. “The onboarding of Henrik is certainly going to strengthen our mission to help our investors and partners to find solutions to achieve their objectives as well as our work in the Investment Committee.”
