"Hoist Finance is an exciting company in a growing market. The implementation of the Basel III regulations means that European banks will continue to have a great need to sell portfolios of non-performing consumer loans.

My task is to use the experience I have to guide and support the company in its future development," says Ingrid Bonde on her new assignment.
"The board now has the competence and experience needed to take the next step in its development. The composition and experience of the board in working in a regulated environment is an asset to the company, both from a governance and a market perspective," says Annika Poutiainen.
