images (2)New York (HedgeCo.Net) – Portfolio manager Alexander Jansson was appointed CEO of EU hedge fund CB Asset Management by the board of directors. Carl Bernadotte will continue as portfolio manager.

“It feels good to hand over the reins internally to Alexander, who is familiar with the company, our clients and the portfolio management. Alexander has the right qualities to manage and maneuver in an increasingly complex financial market that will continue to face major changes. To continue the work with the portfolio management together with Alexander and Marcus feels very inspiring. I welcome Alexander as CEO and look forward to keep on delivering good performance to our investors,” says Carl Bernadotte.

Alexander Jansson has been a portfolio manager since 2009. Prior to that he worked in private equity. Alexander is 30 years old and holds a M.Sc. in Business Administration and a B.Sc. in Economics from Uppsala University. Alexander will continue his work as portfolio manager.

“I am very honored by the trust Carl, as the company’s owner, and the board has given me and look forward to developing the company together with Carl and our colleagues. The company is in an interesting phase with strong AUM growth; good performance over time, and a tailwind for our core investment themes: Europe and the environmental sector. I see us as well positioned in an industry where cost consciousness and an active and ethical management are crucial for the customer,” says Alexander Jansson.

The change took effect on 11 February 2014.
