REQ Capital has recruited Synnove Gjønnes as a portfolio manager. Gjønnes, who previously worked at KLP and Pareto Securities, will manage the new Nordic Compounders equity fund, Nina Hammerstad, chief executive officer at REQ Capital, said in an email.
Nordic Compounders will start operations early next year. The Oslo-based asset management firm earlier this year launched its first fund, global Compounders, which is managed by Oddbjorn Dybvad.
REQ Alternative Investments, which will invest in real estate, hired Gunn Hege Bonden as chief operating officer. Bonden, who previously worked at Stor-Oslo Eiendom and Nordea Bank, will be responsible for monitoring management of properties after investment.
REQ Alternative Investments was recently licensed and will reach out to potential investors in the fall, Hammerstad said.
