SWEDEN - Former chief executive of pension firm AMF Christer Elmehagen has agreed to pay back SEK8.6m (US$1.1m) to his old employer in an out-of-court settlement.
Österholm said Elmehagen gained SEK2.6m by moving his assets ahead of the cut, but agreed to repay the full amount.
She said he also agreed to reimburse another SEK6m of a SEK30m pension payment as a result of a disagreement with the AMF board over the interpretation of his pension entitlements.
She added: "On the top of this payment, AMF will receive a reimbursement by the Swedish tax authorities of salary taxes related to his pension. This will bring the total sum AMF will receive to SEK10.1m."
Elmehagen was the chief executive of AMF for 10 years and stepped down in December 2008.
In March, former executive vice president Ingvar Skeberg left the company because he made the same move with his pension. (Global Pensions; March 20, 2009)
At the time, chief executive Ingrid Bonde said Skeberg's actions were not illegal but that "it is impossible for me to accept and defend this type of behaviour".
