Unigestion has opened an office in Copenhagen to support distribution in the region, and as part of a business growth strategy.
As an independent manager based in Geneva, Unigestion said it would seek to "work closer with investors looking for unique investment strategies, including bespoke ESG solutions for those with more specific requirements."
Besides the Nordic markets of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, the office will also serve the Netherlands market.
The Copenhagen office will be headed by Per Lawӕtz Hansen, who joined as head of Nordics in December 2018. He previously spent two decades working in a number of roles at Nordea.
Fiona Frick, CEO of Unigestion, sadi: "Opening the Copenhagen office underlines our commitment to our growth strategy and investors across the Nordics. To ensure we can be successful in the region it's important that we have a local presence with a deep understanding of the market. Per brings strong relationships and extensive knowledge that will help us to strengthen existing relationships and build a larger network in the region."
