Following business school I joined Investor AB in 1988. I was 1 out of 7 people in the front office and worked with corporate finance, equity research and as head of investor relations. At the time Investor held 34% of the votes of the total market cap of all companies listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, a concentration of ownership unique in the world. It made a great place to start, with a steep learning curve.
Coming from an entrepreneurial home, I always knew I would start my own company, which I did in 1994, bringing Investor AB as my first client. Mercurius Financial Communications became a successful company and we worked with listed companies as well as banks and their client companies in IPOs, private placements and more. I truly enjoy helping companies getting the right funding in order for them to excel.
During my 7 years as an entrepreneur, I also initiated one of the first class action suits in Sweden, which we won. This engagement reflects my interest in democracy and the protection of its legal framework.
In 2004 I became the CEO of Erik Penser Bank and led a successful turnaround of the operations together with a great team and a supportive owner. Subsequently I took on the role as Executive Chairman of the bank.
Since 2008 I focus on investments and act as a catalyst to fund companies that makes a difference.
I am passionate to use the capital market to fund companies that contribute to the sustainable development goals. And that makes a good return doing it. Let us use the capital markets to sustain our world, for us and for coming generations.
