Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Swedish pension giant AP7 announced the appointment of Lena Fahlén as the new Chief Investment Officer (CIO) starting in September. Fahlén, who currently serves as the Head of Global Fixed Income and Currencies at Handelsbanken Capital Markets, will be taking over from Deputy CEO and CIO Ingrid Albinsson, who leaves AP7 in July after more than ten years at the pension fund.

Lena Fahlén has been working at Handelsbanken since January 2001 in various roles, including Head of Global Fixed Income and Currencies, Head of Global Research, and Head of Economic Research at Handelsbanken Capital Markets. She also worked in various senior roles within Handelsbanken’s asset management arm. Fahlén started her career as an economist at the Riksbank in 1998 before joining Handelsbanken Asset Management as an economist in 2001.

“I am proud and happy to be entrusted with the responsibility for asset management at AP7.”

Pål Bergström, the newly appointed CEO of AP7, expresses his enthusiasm for working with Lena Fahlén, stating, “Lena Fahlén is a top recruit whom I look forward to working with.” According to Bergström, “We get an investment manager with extensive experience in overseeing management, analysis and capital market activities,” he continues. “She is an engaging leader who has shown great ability to develop various businesses.”

“I am proud and happy to be entrusted with the responsibility for asset management at AP7,” comments Lena Fahlén, who will take on the CIO role in September. “I am very much looking forward to my new role, not least in light of the new investment opportunities in alternative assets, as well as being able to participate and contribute to AP7’s high ambitions in the area of sustainability.”
