It is with great humility and confidence that I take on the position as CEO for Catella Fonder after Erik Kjellgren. I hereby would like to thank Erik for his contributions to Catella Fonder.
We find ourselves in an environment and situation that is different where Covid-19 impacts us in many ways. This obviously affects our business. We must abide by the regulations and advice from the authorities and the government, while conducting our business in a well functioning manner. I think that we have found a balance as vacations are coming to an end and the schools start after the summer break. We will remain responsive for changes in the Covid-19 situation and act quickly if required.
In my role as CEO it is an integral part to work with the strategy of Catella Fonder. A job that has already been initiated. I am not going to comment further on the work on strategy but only that we have already initiated it. High on the agenda are three highly interesting new funds in the property segment that we hope to be able to present during the autumn. We also have plans on new products within existing segments and within other new segments. More to come.
I have a had a good impression of the employees at Catella Fonder during my brief time as CEO. High level of competence and a will to take us further is a good conclusion. I know several of our colleagues from my previous role as head of alternative investments within Catella. This makes the initial job much easier.
Catella Fonder will have two co-owners going forward, Catella AB and Athanase Industrial Partners. I have since previously a good relationship with both owners and I think that with them it will provide support for our future business.
With these sentences I would like to end my first words as CEO.
Continue following us, await our new product launches and happy to receive feedback.
