Meghann Showers

Nicolai Tangen has put his stamp on the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund, removing his predecessor from the top leadership group and placing an emphasis on technology and responsible ownership at Norway’s $1tn oil fund.

In his first public steps since taking over as chief executive after a contentious hiring process, Mr Tangen found no place in his smaller leadership team for his predecessor Yngve Slyngstad.

Mr Tangen told the Financial Times in his first interview as chief executive that the shake-up was “the perfect trade-off between continuity and some refreshment”.

The former hedge fund manager has set up three new jobs: a chief operating officer, chief technology officer and a chief real assets officer in charge of the fund’s investments in both property and infrastructure.

“This is already a very strong organisation and a great fund. There’s no kind of need for a full-scale change,” Mr Tangen said.
