StormHarbour announces today that it has strengthened its client coverage in the Nordic region with the appointment of two new senior investment banking professionals in its recently launched Copenhagen branch.
Torben Lykke Hansen and Ole Witmeur, former Partners of Nordic securities firm AGL in Copenhagen, will join StormHarbour as Directors, reporting directly to Jacoob Nielsen, Managing Director and Head of the Copenhagen branch, which received regulatory approval in March this year.
StormHarbour has been consistently expanding its international operations since it was founded in 2009 and with the launch of the Copenhagen branch the firm currently has a fully operational presence in seven countries and six major financial centres – London, New York, Geneva, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
Nielsen and Thomas Lester, Director, Client Solutions, joined StormHarbour last year to establish the Copenhagen branch and drive its client coverage in the Nordic region across fixed income sales and trading, structuring and advisory, and capital markets. Between them they have 50-years of investment banking and financial markets experience.
Hansen and Witmeur, who are equally experienced in investment banking and financial markets, will work closely with Nielsen and Lester to grow and develop StormHarbour’s Nordic operations as part of its global business.
