As a natural step in this process, we have looked to expand our team with a senior private debt professional based in Stockholm. We are very excited to have Jan Hebeler onboard our team, who comes with an impressive experience from working for 20+ years in structuring and origination and a well-established network in the industry.”

With a genuine interest in delivering value for its clients and making the right investments, the team has managed to build a strong track record, which I look forward to contributing to.”
