SWEDEN - Mats Anderson, former CIO at Skandia Liv, will take over as AP4 president once Thomas Halvorsen retires.
The board of directors of the Fourth National Swedish Pension Fund announced Anderson’s appointment today, noting the exact starting date of his term in office would be announced later.
Anderson will be taking over from Halvorsen, who is due to retire after 23 years at AP4.
In December 2005, Halvorsen took over responsibility for the daily business of the fund, following the departure of CIO Bjorn Linder to join Stena Sphere, the world’s largest ferry line.
On the back of his departure, AP4 restructured its executive management committee, effectively terminating the position of CIO.
Linder’s former role was split between head of fixed income and currencies, Leif Hässel, and head of equities, Anders årges.
Prior to his role at Skandia Liv, Anderson was a portfolio manager for AP3 and also held leading positions at Deutsche Bank, S.G. Warburg and Hägglöf & Ponsbach.
