Who's moved and where to
PensionDanmark, the Danish not-for-profit labour market pension fund, has hired Susanne Røge Lund as head of socially responsible investments (SRI). Lund previously spent 12 years at Danish pension fund PKA, where her first job was as a financial analyst. “I had also been a student assistant there while I was studying finance and accounting at Copenhagen Business School,” she explains.
In the finance department at PKA, she held several different roles, all within the investment department. “In 2006/07, there was a growing attention on SRI and PKA wanted to have this anchored with one person. I thought it was an exciting new area for me to explore,” she recalls. Lund was first drawn to the SRI sector because of the opportunity to combine traditional investing with social responsibility issues, “thereby creating more value and better conditions for people around the world”.
In her new role, she reports to Jens-Christian Stougaard, director of SRI, and is looking forward to “taking PensionDanmark further on the journey they are already on with regards to SRI”.
