J.P. Morgan Appoints Nordics Innovation Economy Banking Leadby Fintechnews Nordics January 11, 2024
J.P. Morgan’s Commercial Banking business has hired Kim Larsson Nyheim as Innovation Economy banking lead for the Nordics, based in Stockholm.
In this role, Kim is dedicated to serving Nordic-based, early stage, venture-backed companies with high growth potential in industries like Disruptive Commerce, Technology, Life Sciences, Healthcare IT and ClimateTech. These companies benefit from the financial strength, scale, industry specialization, digital capabilities and investments that J.P. Morgan makes to support them from startup to IPO and beyond. This includes payments, capital raising and financing, liquidity solutions and strategic advisory for portfolio companies and more.
Kim brings more than 10 years of financial services experience to J.P. Morgan, specifically focusing on Nordic tech companies the last several years. He joins from Nordea, where he was the Head of Startup & Growth, a specialized unit within the Business Banking division. In this role, he focused on serving fast-growing tech companies.
J.P. Morgan’s Commercial Banking business announced its expansion in the Nordics in December 2022 with the hiring of Franz Kramer. Since then, the team has more than doubled in size and is building relationships with dozens and dozens of Nordic companies, from early stage to traditional midsize.
“Since our Corporate Client Banking Nordics team was established in December 2022, it’s been energizing to experience the positive reception from Nordic companies. There’s a strong need for what we can offer these companies – from early stage to midsize – and we’re pleased to be building our local team further to support this,”
said Franz Kramer, Head of Corporate Client Banking Nordics, J.P. Morgan.
