AUGUST 25 2023

Max Matthiessen continues to future-proof its business as it expands its footprint outside of Sweden. With the acquisitions of the two Danish companies, PensionsSelskabet and StockRate Asset Management, Max Matthiessen will have a significant presence on the Danish market.

"We've ambitious growth targets and are in the process of taking Max Matthiessen to the next level. With us, the customer is always at the centre. The entry into the Danish market is very positive. For future growth, the ambition is to establish a presence in Denmark both organically and through acquisitions," said Jacob Schlawitz, CEO at Max Matthiessen.

PensionsSelskabet pension & health care services has an attractive business model, based on solid partnerships, and has demonstrated a solid track-record of growth and expansion. Its business strategy focuses on ensuring high quality and putting customers' best interest first.

PensionsSelskabet and its employees look forward to joining Max Matthiessen, as it expands its Life & Pension offering and footprint in Denmark. The acquisition will widen the selection of products and services accessible to customers in Denmark.

"It's very promising that this is becoming a reality, and we're all looking forward to joining. With Max Matthiessen's strength and experience, we can improve and develop our services and range of innovative products in Denmark," said Stig Wetterstrom, CEO at PensionsSelskabet.

Max Matthiessen also acquires StockRate Asset Management, a leading provider of personal wealth management services, and by that increases its market shares within the segment. With the ambition to expand further internationally, the StockRate acquisition is a perfect match. It brings a presence on the Danish market and is an excellent addition to Max Matthiessen’s product assortment. Furthermore, it will give StockRate employees the opportunity to benefit from Max Matthiessen’s established collaborations and access to Max Matthiessen Group’s business solutions.

The strengthened investment solutions will be beneficial for the customers. StockRate has a solid business model based on flourishing partnerships and a very strong Private Banking branch.

We always strive to create value to our customers through customised products, attentive customer service and continuous improvement in our performance.
