Mandatum Life, the life insurance and asset management arm of Helsinki headquartered insurance group Sampo, has established a new loan strategy team with the purpose of centralizing and bringing senior loan investment operations more extensively within the reach of its customers. While broadening their product offering, Mandatum Life seeks to strengthen the co-investment philosophy between Sampo Group’s own investments and that offered to its customers.
The mandate will focus on both Nordic and European syndicated leveraged loans and bonds, as well as on small & mid-cap Nordic leveraged loan transactions alongside Nordic commercial real estate loans.
The loan strategy team will work in close collaboration with Sampo and If portfolio management, which together are re-sponsible for a significant fixed income investment portfolio by Nordic standards.
The new loan strategy team is headed by Alexander Gallotti (previously at Sampo plc) with recent senior hires Kimmo Salokoski (previously at Danske Bank) and Ilkka Lampio (previously at Bain & Company).
Sampo Group is one of the largest Nordic insurance groups with assets in excess of €21,8 bn predominantly in fixed in-come as well as in equity and alternative investments.
