“It has been an incredibly exciting time at Avanza, which is something quite different from when I started 12 years ago. At that time, Avanza had about 150,000 customers with SEK 48 billion in savings capital. We have now passed 1 million customers with 400 billion in savings capital and won SKI for Sweden's most satisfied savings customers for the last ten years. I have long had a plan that when I turn 60, I will no longer work operationally. Now I look forward to spending more time with my family, but I am also open to board assignments. I am proud to have been a part of Avanza and I will miss the drive and energy of all the fantastic colleagues", says Birgitta Hagenfeldt, CFO Avanza.
“Birgitta has been an important part of Avanza's growth for the past 12 years. For me personally, she has also been an invaluable support since I took over as CEO. Birgitta is a very popular and strong leader and her skills and commitment will be missed. However, I have full respect for her decision, and I wish her all the best in the future now when she chooses to leave the operational part of her professional life", says Rikard Josefson, CEO of Avanza.
