Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan finds new chief investment officer in Denmark

Bjarne Graven Larsen has been appointed as the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan new chief investment officer.

The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan has appointed a new chief investment officer to replace longtime CIO Neil Petroff, who retired in June.

Bjarne Graven Larsen, who will also serve as executive vice-president, takes the role Feb. 1, and will report to chief executive Ron Mock.

Graven Larsen is a former CIO and executive board member of Denmark’s largest pension plan, ATP, which is the fourth largest pension in Europe.

Most recently, however, he was chief financial officer of Novo A/S in Copenhagen, and before that he led the successful turnaround of Denmark’s sixth largest bank, FIH Erhvervsbank A/S, which was acquired by an ATP-led Danish consortium.

“With his investment expertise, global experience, forward thinking on risk management, and importantly, hands-on work within a total return framework, Bjarne is uniquely positioned to be our Chief Investment Officer,” Mock said in a statement Monday.

“He has the experience and vision to lead our world-class investment team into our next generation of global growth.”
