Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Josephine Cetti is leaving her role as Portfolio Specialist at St. Petri Capital to become Nordea’s new chief investment strategist in Denmark. “Sometimes you get an opportunity you can’t say no to,” says Cetti in a LinkedIn post announcing her departure. Set to start in the new role on November 1, Cetti will be responsible for the investment vision and investments in Nordea’s pool schemes in Denmark.
“By the end of this month, I will no longer work for St. Petri Capital,” writes Cetti. “For the last year, I have worked with some amazing and very brilliant colleagues at St. Petri Capital. I have enjoyed every single day and I have learned a lot,” she continues. “I am grateful to the founders of St. Petri for giving me the opportunity to work for what I think is the coolest hedge fund in town.”

Josephine Cetti brings 17 years of experience to Nordea. She began her career as a stock trader and analyst at Nordea and later worked as a senior portfolio manager at PensionDanmark. In November 2021, Cetti joined St. Petri Capital’s portfolio management team comprised of Michal Danielewicz and Jens Larsson, the duo who co-founded the asset manager in 2017 and launched thematic-focused long/short equity fund St. Petri L/S. “It has been a pleasure for us to work with Josephine and we are certain that she will do very well in her new position,” the founding duo comments on Cetti’s departure.
“I am looking forward to working for Nordea, it’s a fantastically exciting challenge to have to lay out the overall investment strategy for the Danish customers in the Nordic region’s largest bank,” comments Cetti, Nordea’s incoming chief strategist. “My driving force is always to be at the forefront of the interaction between developments in the global economy and financial markets. We must identify the opportunities and risks that exist, and at the same time, understand what drives the markets – not just here and now – but also in the future,” she continues. “I will make an effort to deliver clear and visible communication to Nordea’s customers and stakeholders and, of course, place emphasis on contributing valuable professional sparring to customers and internally in the organization.”
St. Petri Capital, which runs the hedge fund that returned 98 percent in 2020, has expanded both its team and product range since Cetti joined in late 2021. Ivan Larsen, a long-time small-cap-focused portfolio manager at Danske Bank Asset Management, joined the Copenhagen-based hedge fund manager as a partner and portfolio manager to launch a long-only European small-cap fund this September. St. Petri Capital’s Michal Danielewicz and Jens Larsson are also working on the launch of a long-only micro cap-focused fund by the end of 2022.
