Changes to the Board of Directors of Försäkringsaktiebolaget Avanza Pension

The annual general meeting of Försäkringsaktiebolaget Avanza Pension on 19 March elected Anders Scherlund and Viktor Fritzén as new members of the Board of Directors. Anna Kinberg Batra is leaving the Board.

Anders Scherlund and Viktor Fritzén have been elected as new members of the Board of Directors of Försäkringsaktie­bolaget Avanza Pension. Anders Scherlund has a long background in banking and insurance, including in operations and on the board of Nordea Liv & Pension and as Partner at Addeno, where he works with change initiatives in different organisations. Viktor Fritzén, who is also a board member of Avanza Bank Holding AB, has a background in finance and gaming as an analyst and most recently as CFO of Leo Vegas.

Anna Kinberg Batra, who was elected as a member last May, is leaving the board. She has been nominated to the board of Collector AB, which is incompatible with her assignment at Avanza.
