Christoffer Folkebo assumes role as CEO of Carneo Asset Managers
Christoffer Folkebo has now assumed the role as CEO of Carneo Asset Managers (“Carneo”), formerly known as Caram.
Christoffer Folkebo joins Carneo from Max Matthiessen where he has served as Group CEO for the past 12 years. During those years, Max Matthiessen developed from a local insurance broker into a well-managed, growing and profitable financial services firm and became a part of the global company Willis Towers Watson. Christoffer has extensive experience from the finance sector and is an acknowledged leader.
“We welcome Christoffer to Carneo and look forward to supporting his efforts to grow Carneo Asset Managers in the years to come,“ says Arne Lindman, Chairman of the Board.
“I am very excited to join Carneo Asset Managers and to continue the expansion of the leading independent asset management group in the Nordic region,” says Christoffer Folkebo, CEO of Carneo.
The decision to change the name to “Carneo Asset Managers” is based on the ambition to enable the business to operate freely throughout Europe. Carneo will continue to operate under the principle of bringing together world-class independent firms as affiliates, enabling them to have their own operational autonomy while at the same time benefitting from the scale and strength of being part of Carneo Asset Managers. At Carneo we believe world-class active asset management beats passive management and that alternative assets is an important part of the future.
Carneo is the largest independent asset management group in the Nordics, with over EUR 26 billion in AuM. Carneo operates a multi-boutique structure, which preserves the independence and identity of the affiliated managers. The group consists of C WorldWide, Carnegie Fonder, OPM, Nordic Cross Asset Management, Carneo Investment Solutions and Albatris.
