Gustav Berggren a member of Group management at Avanza leaves for new ventures

Gustav Berggren has been a member of Group management since 2014 and Head of the Private Bank since 2009. Gustav has been a big part of building Avanza’s Private Banking business which has shown and continues to show significant growth. Gustav will now move on to start his own venture, providing financial products in a fintech setting. He will remain with Avanza’s Group management for the duration of his contract leave of 6 months at the longest.

”After 10 years with Avanza I have had my first, second and third job here. I am now looking forward to new exiting ventures with my own business, a financial product company in a fintech setting. Hopefully working with Avanza as a partner moving forward. Leaving now gives me comfort knowing that Mr Josefson will join as new CEO. The timing seems right for me to become an entrepreneur”, says Gustav Berggren.

”Gustav has been a strong force in building the growth and success of the Private Bank, and will be missed. Gustav started his career at Avanza 10 years ago, so therefore it is understandable that he now wants to move on. We wish him the best of luck”, says Johan Prom, CEO of Avanza.
