I am responsible for Standard Chartered Nordics, and also CEO of the Sweden branch. I have been with the bank since 2015, and prior to that I have worked in Stockholm, Milan and London with other financial institutions. My passion for Standard Chartered comes from our ability to service our clients in some of the most challenging countries in the world, including helping our clients prosper by supporting them with export financings and local solutions, and also providing financial institutions with access to the same markets with sustainable investment or risk management solutions.
