Carnegie and Max Matthiessen have entered an exclusive co-operation agreement regarding pension and insurance advice. Carnegie’s pension and insurance advice service through Carnegie Pension Consulting AB will be taken over by Max Matthiessen and Carnegie’s fund management products – own as well as externally supplied ¬– will be offered to Max Matthiessen’s 135,000 clients.
“There is increasing interest in long-term pension savings, our clients are demanding broader independent financial advice, and we want to be ahead of the game. The co-operation with Carnegie gives Max Matthiessen’s clients access to advisory services from a leading investment bank,” says Christoffer Folkebo, deputy CEO at Max Matthiessen.
“Carnegie must be the leading player in its business areas. The pension area is undergoing structural changes and we are convinced that economy of size is of paramount importance if we are to offer our clients the best solutions in the most cost efficient way. That is why we have chosen to co-operate with the leading player in the pension market,” says Lars Risland, managing director of Carnegie Pension Consulting.
The agreement will not have any material result effects for Carnegie in this financial year.
