Press Release: NIO appoints new CEO to lead the expansion to Germany and the rest of the Nordic Countries

The board of directors at Nordic Investment Opportunities A/S NIO has appointed Michael Moth Greve as Chief Executive Officer. Michael Moth Greve is Head of European Distribution at Affiliated Managers Group (AMG). The appointment is scheduled accordingly with Mogens Thorninger’s resignation of his role as interim CEO and he will focus on his role in Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners P/S.

NIO emerged from the senior partner group of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and the founders of the real estate company NREP. NIO was founded in 2018 with the purpose to offer alternative investments to non-institutional investors. NIO provides an opportunity for smaller investors to invest in funds, that would otherwise be accessible only to blue-chip investors.

‘I am very happy to present Michael Moth Greve as NIO’s new CEO. NIO is on track to establish itself as the leading manager of alternative investments to smaller investors in Northern Europe, and as a part of the expansion plan, Michael is the perfect choice to lead the coming growth journey. He has in-depth knowledge of managing alternative investment strategies and extensive experience with European expansion’, says Chairman of the Board Bjarne Graven Larsen

NIO manages approximately 1 billion euros, and the capital has been raised primarily in Denmark and the Nordic countries e.g., the investor base includes Lind Invest and Kirk Kapital.

Michael Moth Greve, who will take over as CEO on November 8th, has followed NIO from the sidelines since the company was founded, and he declares himself “very impressed” by the results achieved in a short time.

‘It is indisputable that many investors today have too low an allocation for alternative investment strategies, and this has only been reinforced by the low-interest-rate environment. NIO offers investors a unique platform, providing access to a one-stop-shop for the best alternative investment strategies, which are normally reserved for the largest institutional investors’, says Michael Moth Greve.

He emphasizes that NIO’s owners and board of directors consist of people with strong business and investment profiles, who all invest aligned with external investors.

‘I also look forward to investing with them. I am convinced that there is a significant growth potential for NIO by focusing on local and foreign partnerships and I look forward to becoming part of the NIO team and to continuing the successful journey towards becoming a leading Northern European player within alternative investments’, he says.
