SEB Expands in Asia
Hanse Ringström, in his role as responsible for SEB’s Asian franchise, will relocate to Hong Kong upon the opening of the new branch this summer. Additionally, Carl Christensson has been appointed head of SEB’s Hong Kong branch and will also be located there. This will strengthen SEB’s presence in the region as the Asian market grows in importance for an increasing number of SEB’s clients and Hong Kong has developed into an important financial centre in the world economy.
Ringström is responsible for SEB’s Asian franchise, as well as chairman of SEB Asia advisory board, and in addition also a member of the merchant banking management team. Christensson is deputy head of structured finance at the merchant banking division and previously to this head of SEB’s Shanghai branch, which he also established.
