Swedbank: New Chief Economist and new head of Macro Research at Swedbank

Press release published at The Swedish Wire
Anna Felländer, previously head of Macro Research, has been appointed Chief Economist and Olof Manner has been recruited as head of Macro Research at Swedbank.

Anna succeeds Cecilia Skingsley, who left the bank in May to take up the post of Deputy Governor of the Riksbank. Since then, Anna has had the post of Acting Chief Economist.

Michael Wolf, Swedbank's President and CEO, comments on the appointment:
"Since Anna joined Swedbank - her competence and network on both the government and client side has been appreciated and valuable to the bank. In her new role as Chief Economist, she will focus on continuing the bank's tradition of reaching out in issues that affect our clients, and adding value through qualified macro analysis on critical matters."

Anna has a solid track record in macroeconomics and has been with Swedbank since 2010, most recently as head of Macro Research. Previously, she was senior analyst on the FX & Fixed Income side. Prior to that, she worked as a client executive in the unit responsible for bank relations. Before joining Swedbank, Anna worked for eight years at the Swedish Ministry of Finance, where she held a number of positions as specialist in macroeconomics. During the financial crisis, she was part of the Crisis Management Coordination Secretariat under the Prime Minister's Office. Anna has an MSc in International Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics.

New head of Macro Research
Swedbank also announces that the bank has recruited Olof Manner as new head of Macro Research. Olof joins Swedbank from Öhman-gruppen, the asset manager, where he is currently Senior Advisor, having previously held a number of key positions, including head of Fixed Income and Executive Vice President. Olof joined Öhman Fondkommission back in 1987, and stayed there for over 20 years. In 2010, he was recruited by the UK bank Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), where he stayed for two years as Head of Scandinavian Rates Sales. Olof also lectures on macro/fixed income and since 2009 has been writing a regular column in "Affärsvärlden" the Swedish business magazine.

Angelique Angervall, head of Swedbank Research, comments on the appointments:
"We are pleased to have secured these two key candidates to Swedbank Research. Olof, with his long experience and broad competence, has an in-depth market understanding. This, in combination with his strong leadership credentials, means he will take our macro research to the next level. Swedbank Research's strength is in monitoring all asset classes and working fully integrated to build independent analyses with a balanced view. On our continued journey, Anna and Olof will both play important roles."

Anna will take up her post with immediate effect, and Olof will assume his new position no later than 1 March 2014.
