"During the past year, the profitability of IPM has significantly improved and the company is now well prepared for a more expansionary phase. With his extensive experience in quantitative portfolio management, both as a portfolio manager and from his work with business development, Stefan will bring additional expertise to IPM's core areas. He will form the foundation of a highly competent management team," says Knut Pedersen, President and CEO of Catella.
