“Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), one of the world’s leading asset managers with €1.4 trillion in assets under management (AuM)1, today announces the opening of its first Nordic office in Stockholm, Sweden, in a move aimed at strengthening the firm’s presence in the region.
The local presence will enable LGIM to work more closely with institutional investors and wholesale clients in the Nordics, already a key market for the asset manager in Europe. LGIM will continue to offer its range of active and passive investment solutions, underpinned by Responsible Investing, in the region, covering Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Managing €178bn in responsible investment strategies explicitly linked to ESG criteria2, LGIM will leverage its expertise and its leading Investment Stewardship team to service demand from local investors.
The office will be led by Anders Arjes who joins LGIM today as Head of Nordics Institutional. Anders will be supported by a dedicated sales function for the firm’s Nordic clients, based in London, and will report to Volker Kurr, Head of Europe Institutional.
Anders joins from Deutsche Bank where he worked as director in institutional equity sales. Previously, he was account manager in institutional equity sales at Credit Agricole Cheuvreux Nordic. He also worked as head of global equities at the fourth Swedish national pension fund (AP4), where he was also a member of the Executive Management Committee. Anders holds a Master of Science diploma, accounting and finance major, from Stockholm School of Economics.”
