Richard Gröttheim served as CEO of Sweden’s default pension fund for 12 years before retiring in May of last year, marking the end of his 23-year tenure in AP7’s senior management. Gröttheim has been at AP7 since the pension fund began operations in 2000, initially serving as Executive Vice President for over a decade before being appointed CEO in October 2010.
