Hansen has some 30 years’ experience in finance an investment banking. Prior to AGL, he was head of capital market structuring for HSH Nordbank in Copenhagen. Earlier, he ran debt capital markets businesses and worked as a senior advisor on project finance and capital markets transactions for several leading Nordic-focused investment banks and financial institutions   
 
Witmeur has over 23 years of fixed income capital markets and investment banking experience. Prior to AGL, Witmeur worked for Depfa Bank, where he was responsible for its activities in the Nordic and Baltic countries, and for the investment banking arm of a U.S. reinsurer, where he ran structured derivatives marketing for the Nordic region. He has also worked for Nordic focused investment banks and other financial institutions, holding senior roles in capital markets, project finance and derivatives.

Founded in 2009, StormHarbour has been steadily expanding its international operations and now has a fully operational presence in seven countries and six major financial centers—London, New York, Geneva, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
