Niklas Ekvall, head of group treasury at Nordea, welcomed Persson to the bank.

“His understanding of the banking industry, the developing banking regulation and experiences from working with these issues internationally will bring a lot of value to Nordea’s funding and treasury activities,” he said.

As previously reported in Nordic FIs & Covered, Borgström leaves Nordea this month. She had been head of group funding since 1997.
