The dealer aims to build on last year’s strong momentum.
The banker, who oversees SEB AB’s Swedish corporate finance sector, expects his equity capital markets team to have another good year.
“With over 20 Nordic IPOs in our portfolio, we are optimistic about the future.” “We’re always looking for new talent, and we intend to keep growing the team this year,” Maria Rimbak said in an interview.
The focus will be on small and medium-sized companies.
Rimbak hopes to capitalize on last year’s excellent momentum when IPO activity in the Nordic region’s largest economy reached a new high of $14 billion, second only to the United Kingdom in Europe. The emphasis will be on small and medium-sized transactions.
According to recent statements by SEB CEO Johan Torgeby, the success of the Swedish IPO market has been powered by a receptive investor base, both institutional and retail, as well as an active start-up environment that has recently blossomed.
However, the global market instability impacted activity at the start of this year, but Rimbak believes things will recover by spring.
