Swedish pensions industry heavyweight Mats Langensjö has been hired by Lombard Odier Investment Managers (LOIM) to develop the advisory business for its insurance and pensions industry clients.

Langensjö – who was special adviser to the Swedish Ministry of Finance and headed the much-debated AP Funds inquiry in 2012 – is based in London in the new role and will report to Hubert Keller, chief executive of LOIM and a managing partner at Lombard Odier.

The company said Langensjö would “help meet the changing demands of insurance and pensions industry clients”.

He will start the job officially on 1 December and focus on the Nordic region.

Most recently, Langensjö was chief executive at Brummer Life Insurance Company, and head of clients at Brummer & Partners in Stockholm. 

He has also held senior roles at companies including Unicredit Group, Aon Consulting Worldwide, Mercer and Goldman Sachs.
