Swedbank Robur appoints new Head of Equity and new Head of Fixed Income
Swedbank Robur has appointed Ulrika Enhörning as new Head of Equities and Karin Beltzér as the new Head of Fixed Income. Both are valued and senior employees at Swedbank Robur and have a solid experience of the fund and finance industry. They will start their new assignments in November 2021.
Ulrika Enhörning has worked at Swedbank Robur since 2004. She comes most recently from the role as portfolio manager for Småbolag Europa, a position she will maintain during a transitional period in parallel with taking up her new position as Head of Equities. Previous assignments include, among other things, portfolio manager of Swedbank Robur Europa as well as various managerial roles. Focus in her new role will be to lead and coach the portfolio managers and continue to drive the sustainability work forward.
"I am very happy and proud to shoulder the role as Head of Equity at Swedbank Robur. I look forward to working with the portfolio managers to continue to create long-term value for our customers and savers," says Ulrika Enhörning, Head of Equities at Swedbank Robur.
Karin Beltzér comes most recently from the role as portfolio manager of Swedbank Robur Corporate Bond Europe High Yield and Corporate Bond Mix, which she will continue to co-manage while a replacement is recruited. Karin has worked with credit analysis and management of credit assets since 2006 and has a deep understanding of the fixed income market as well as long experience within fund management. Previous assignments include global high yield management at SEB Investment Management.
"It feels fantastic to take on the role as Head of Fixed Income at Swedbank Robur. Fixed income investments are an important part of an investment portfolio and the credit segment in particular is relatively unknown in Sweden. The fixed income market also plays an important role in shifting capital in a more sustainable direction. With various sustainable bonds, we can directly support the climate transition, and I will work to ensure that Swedbank Robur continues to be in the forefront”, says Karin Beltzér, Head of Fixed Income at Swedbank Robur.
Ulrika Enhörning and Karin Beltzér will take up their new roles in November and will report to Pia Haak, (acting) CIO Swedbank Robur.
