The Future Fund today announced the appointment of Mr Björn Kvarnskog as Head of Equities and a member of the Investment Committee.

Björn will report to the Future Fund’s Chief Investment Officer, Dr Raphael Arndt. Most recently Björn was Head of Equities with Swedish pension fund AP4. His previous roles included senior equities investment positions with DnB NOR AssetManagement, AP3 and Alfred Berg Asset Management.

Dr Raphael Arndt, the Future Fund’s Chief Investment Officer, said:

“I am delighted that Björn is joining us and will bring his extensive experience in long-term investing and leadership to the Fund. Bringing together different investment perspectives is enormously important to how we run the portfolio and Björn will be a great addition to our thinking.

“Sarah Carne has done a tremendous job in filling the acting Head of Equities position while we have undertaken the recruitment process. I am very grateful to her for her hard work and commitment and she will continue to lead the team until Björn takes up his role,” said Dr Arndt.

Björn will relocate from Stockholm to take up his position in early 2016.
