Anders Scherlund and Viktor Fritzén have been elected as new members of the Board of Directors of Försäkringsaktiebolaget Avanza Pension. Anders Scherlund has a long background in banking and insurance, including in operations and on the board of Nordea Liv & Pension and as Partner at Addeno, where he works with change initiatives in different organisations. Viktor Fritzén, who is also a board member of Avanza Bank Holding AB, has a background in finance and gaming as an analyst and most recently as CFO of Leo Vegas.
Anna Kinberg Batra, who was elected as a member last May, is leaving the board. She has been nominated to the board of Collector AB, which is incompatible with her assignment at Avanza.
“Viktor with his financial background and Anders’ long experience in the life insurance industry will make strong additions to the board and our efforts to democratise pension savings in Sweden,” says Rikard Josefson, Chairman of the Board of Försäkringsaktiebolaget Avanza Pension. “I would also like to thank Anna for her work on the board.”
“I would like to thank Avanza for the opportunity to be part of Avanza Pension’s board. This is a vital industry facing major change, where I hope Avanza will continue to do important work,” says Anna Kinberg Batra.
