Get off the lending hamster wheel

first_img continue reading » We spend an inordinate amount of time, marketing, sales dollars, and imagination to originate new loans.Our collective creativity has created a loan origination process that includes quick loan decisions, the use of electronic signatures, omni-channel delivery, point of sale (POS) financing, triggers, and teams of credit union professionals who know how to make the member loan origination experience a “wow.”Yet we find that our net loan growth is only a fraction of our new originations.The challenge is that we have not perfected a means to retain the loans once they are a part of our portfolio. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img

​Industriens Pension bags PE, infra experts from Vækstfonden and ATP

first_imgDenmark’s pension fund for industrial-sector workers, Industriens Pension, has hired two specialists in unlisted investments to work in its private equity and infrastructure portfolios – asset classes the DKK174bn (€23bn) fund said play a leading role in its strategy.The pension fund appointed Heidi Haurholm-Rasmussen and Christian Finnerup Berg, who are coming to the Copenhagen-based fund from state financing vehicle the Danish Growth Fund (Vækstfonden) and the country’s biggest pension fund ATP, respectively.Jan Østergaard, head of unlisted investments at Industriens Pension, said: “Heidi Haurholm-Rasmussen has solid experience in private equity, while Christian Finnerup Berg has worked extensively on infrastructure investments.”The labour-market pension fund said it currently has over DKK50bn in unlisted assets, with private equity and infrastructure making up around DKK38bn of this, adding that the historically high returns generated from these asset classes in the past meant unlisted investments played a key role in its plans. “I am sure they can contribute to continuing our good results in both asset classes,” said Østergaard.Industriens Pension said Haurholm-Rasmussen has worked with private equity for the past eight years as senior investment manager at the Danish Growth Fund and also at Danske Bank asset management arms Danske Capital and Danske Private Equity.Finnerup Berg currently works on unlisted investments as senior investment manager at ATP, having previously worked for Danish commercial property developer Sadolin & Albæk, it said.Both new appointees will start work in their new roles as senior investment managers on 1 July.A spokesman for the pension fund said both appointments were for existing rather than new roles, but that because of continuous adjustments to responsibilities in the investment team, it was not possible to say exactly who the newcomers were replacing.Among other recent changes in Industriens Pension’s unlisted investments operation, Peter Juhl Nielsen started work at the fund earlier this month, in his new role of director in the department.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine?
