Having joined SEB in July 1997, Robert previously directed SEB’s Trading Strategy Analytical Unit where he was responsible for market and trading oriented currency, interest, and credit analysis.

Prior to SEB, Robert worked at the Swedish Central Bank´s Monetary & Exchange Rate Policy Department, where he was head of the analysis division. Robert spent nine years, from 1988 to 1997, at Sveriges Riksbank, managing monetary and exchange rate policy decisions, international central banks cooperation, and balance of payments analysis.
