Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Cristina Lugaro has joined Ness, Risan & Partners (NRP), a minority shareholder in Swedish small-cap boutique Origo Fonder. She will be based in Origo Fonder’s Stockholm office and will work closely together with both the NRP and Origo fund management teams.

“I am very excited to join Ness, Rissan & Partners as Senior Sales Manager,” Lugaro announces on LinkedIn. NRP is a privately-owned investment firm offering direct investment and fund solutions within real estate, private equity clean tech, shipping, and offshore sectors. The Oslo-based company, founded by Norwegian entrepreneurs Christian Ness and Ragnvald Risan in 2000, acquired a 30 percent stake in Origo Fonder in 2022 to expand its asset management operations and strengthen its presence in the Swedish market. “The NRP and Origo teams in Oslo and Stockholm are very experienced and I look forward to working with them,” says Lugaro.

“The NRP and Origo teams in Oslo and Stockholm are very experienced and I look forward to working with them.”

Lugaro joins the Norwegian investment company from Resscapital, where she was part of the institutional sales team behind the asset manager’s alternative investment fund investing in U.S. life insurance policies. Before joining Resscapital in early 2020, Lugaro worked for Fortis in Brussels and Alfred Berg and BNP Paribas Asset Management in Stockholm. She worked as a Senior Business Development Manager for Nordic Markets at Alfred Berg, a subsidiary of BNP Paribas Asset Management. She led the asset gathering for the Parvest Equity Nordic Small Cap fund that reached €180 million within two years from launch, among other things.

“We are thrilled to announce that Cristina Lugaro is our new Sales Manager,” comments Stefan Roos, CIO and founder of Origo Fonder. “Cristina has extensive experience in the small-cap field and within alternative investments, so this is a perfect match. We warmly welcome Cristina to our team.” Origo Fonder celebrated the 10-year anniversary of its long/short equity fund Origo Quest in early February. The Stockholm-based small-cap-focused boutique expanded its fund offering last year with the launch of a long-only equity fund, Origo Seleqt, that focuses on Nordic micro- and small-sized companies.
