- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Mikael Huldt, currently serving as the Head of Alternative Investments at Afa Försäkring, will assume the position of Head of Asset Management at the Swedish insurance company in November. Sara Källander, the current head of Accounting and Controlling at the pension firm, will take over as CFO starting from December 1. These appointments mark the replacements of Johan Held, the current Head of Asset Management, and Johan Dahlgren, the Head of Finance, both of whom are retiring.

Mikael Huldt has been serving as Afa Försäkring’s Head of Alternative Investments for seven and a half years, overseeing investments in unlisted shares, loans, and infrastructure assets, among others. Prior to joining Afa Försäkring in November 2015, he held the position of Head of Alternative Investments at Kåpan Pensioner for a little over two years and worked as a senior portfolio manager in alternative investments at AP3 for nine and a half years. Huldt will assume his new role as Head of Asset Management on November 1.

“I am greatly looking forward to the exciting opportunity and challenge of leading Afa Försäkring’s successful and responsible capital management while contributing to the social security system in Sweden.”

“I am greatly looking forward to the exciting opportunity and challenge of leading Afa Försäkring’s successful and responsible capital management while contributing to the social security system in Sweden,” comments Huldt. “Continuing to collaborate with my competent and pleasant colleagues in a new role adds an extra sense of motivation and enjoyment,” he adds. “The current market situation, with geopolitical unrest, high inflation, and rising interest rates, is difficult to navigate and quite uncertain in many ways. That is why I also take on the task with great humility.”

“I am happy to take on the position of CFO, which presents an exciting challenge that I approach with confidence.”

Sara Källander began her career at Ernst&Young as an accountant for nearly nine years before joining If P&C Insurance as Chief Accountant. Since 2016, Källander has been with Afa Försäkring, serving as the head of Accounting and Controlling, which involved responsibilities for internal and external reporting. She will assume the role of CFO on December 1, 2023. “I am happy to take on the position of CFO, which presents an exciting challenge that I approach with confidence,” comments Källander. “Continuing to develop the business and exploring how Afa Försäkring can best benefit from new technologies, such as increased digitization, are matters I will continue to pursue.”
