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.
