Tittel SpareBank 1 Markets moves into asset management
Asset management will be established as a new business unit in SpareBank 1
Markets. The new unit will be based on existing specialist environments in
Trondheim and Tromsø.
SpareBank 1 Markets acquires Allegro Kapitalforvaltning in Trondheim and
SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge Forvaltning in Tromsø from SpareBank 1 SMN and SpareBank
1 Nord-Norge respectively. The bought companies will be merged and will
spearhead SpareBank 1 Markets' asset management business. The new business unit
will have combined AUM of approximately 10 NOK billion.

- Asset management is a new and exiting business area for us, and will
supplement SpareBank 1 Markets' business offering. I am convinced this will
further strengthen the existing specialist environments in Trondheim and Tromsø,
which is where the specialist competence within asset management exists and will
be further strengthened, says CEO of SpareBank 1 Markets Stein Husby.

The merged asset management company will apply for a fund management license to
further develop products and services offered with the business area. The
acquired companies have discretionary investment management licences in place.

- In addition to this new business unit, SpareBank 1 Market has announced the
signing of several experienced professionals from Swedbank Norge. These
strategic measures combined strengthens our position in capital markets space
significantly, says Mr. Husby.

SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge holds approximately 13 % of the shares in SpareBank 1
Markets after the acquisition.
