Nordea appoints new head of equities trading

Rolf Mølkjær to join Nordea Asset Management as of June this year.

Nordea Asset Management has named its new head of equities trading, following Per Moeller’s decision to retire from the industry. 

Rolf Mølkjær will join Nordea as head of equities trading on 1 June this year, following six years with Nykredit Asset Management in the same position.

He replaces Per Moeller who has retired after being with Nordea since 2001, holding several senior equities trading roles with the buy-side firm.

Prior to his time at Nykredit, Mølkjær worked at Danske Capital, working his way up from dealer to portfolio manager to head of equity trading.

Nordea Asset Management reported record assets under management of €330 billion in the first quarter this year.

Commenting on the performance, CEO at Nordea, Casper von Koskull, said the firm is “now seeing good potential for a synchronised recovery with improving growth prospects.”
