Change in the Nomination Committee’s proposal ahead of the AGM in Avanza Bank Holding AB (publ)

 · Regulatorisk information

Henrik Tjärnström has notified that he is withdrawing his candidacy as Board Member in Avanza due to changed circumstances. Due to this, the Nomination Committee’s proposal is to re-elect Magnus Dybeck, Jonas Hagströmer, Sven Hagströmer, John Hedberg, Linda Hellström, Johan Roos and Leemon Wu, and to elect Julia Haglind and Lisa Åberg as new members. An updated document of the Nomination Committee’s work and explanatory statement and proposals will be available shortly on on

”Henrik has been offered another position that, in combination with his other plans, makes it difficult to take on the time consuming Board membership in Avanza. Being a Board member of a bank has a higher workload than other board assignments, and there are also regulatory requirements that a member must have enough time to set aside for the membership. Although we are convinced that Henrik would have been a valuable asset to Avanza’s Board of Directors, we do respect his decision to withdraw the candidacy. If Henrik’s plans change in the future, so that there is enough time for Avanza, we will pick up the dialogue then”, says Erik Törnberg, Chariman of the Nomination Committee.

”I have been offered to candidate as a new Board Member of Creaspac, which I have decided to accept as I feel that the company’s future plans fit well with my expertise. Combined with my other plans, there is a risk that I will not be able to live up to the requirements to set aside enough time as a member of the Board of Directors of a bank, which is why I have now decided to withdraw my candidacy as a Board member of Avanza”, says Henrik Tjärnström.
