New director of institutional sales in Denmark: Philip Garde
Philip Garde is leading the efforts to reach out to institutional investors in the Danish market.
How has your first time at Lannebo been?
“Very exciting and interesting! I’ve been able to immerse myself in a new company and culture with many funds on the palette.”
What is your role at Lannebo?
“I’m responsible for institutional sales in Denmark, which is a new position and a business area that I will develop. So I work from Lannebo’s office in Copenhagen together with the managers of Lannebo Europe Small Cap.”
What do you enjoy most with your job?
“All days are different which suits me. Meeting clients both virtually and physically is exciting and I really enjoy building relationships and creating business opportunities.”
What have you worked with prior to joining Lannebo?
“I have 20 years of experience in the financial sector where I have been both a stockbroker and dealt with institutional clients. Most recently I was at an independent stockbroking firm where I had a similar role to the one I have now at Lannebo.”
Are there any similarities between working at Lannebo and what you have done before?
“Absolutely, I’ve been working with institutional clients since 2014 in similar roles so I’m very familiar with that. But what stands out about Lannebo is the strong entrepreneurial spirit and I haven’t experienced that in many places before. It’s something I thrive on and I really enjoy being involved in developing and creating something new.”
What do you do when you’re not working?
“I spend time with my family and friends. I like to be active and enjoy running and fitness. I used to play a lot of badminton, but my body can’t take it anymore.”
