Nordea has completed its search for a new head of unit at Nordea Wealth Management, and appointed Mikkel Rørvig to take on responsibility for business development within the investments division at Nordea Wealth Management.

"It's a newly-established business unit that is to underpin our increased ambitions in the investment unit," Nordea tells  AMWatch's sister site FinansWatch.

Rørvig has worked at Nordea since 2001 and has had several roles in wholesale banking, retail banking, and in recent years Wealth Management. He comes from a job as head of partnerships and sourcing in Investment Products at Nordea Wealth Management. He has been responsible for savings and investment products to private customers and private banking customers in the Nordics.

"Mikkel has played a crucial role in the development of our investment products in recent years. His in-depth knowledge in wealth management and investments and vast experience in business development, management and implementation of changes make him the perfect candidate to facilitate the next level of the development of our Investments unit," says Thomas Otbo, group CIO.

"I look forward to joining the team at Nordea Wealth Managements Investments and to head the development of the business unit together with the team. We will build on our solid foundation, utilize synergies across Nordea and continue to deliver strong solutions to our customers," says Rørvig.

Rørvig holds a diploma in business administration from CBS, diploma in management and investment strategies from Columbia Business School and Wharton. He lives in Vedbæk, north of Copenhagen, with his girlfriend and two daughters.
