Leane previously worked as managing director at BlackRock where he helped build the company’s Scandinavian business.

He has also worked at Merill Lynch Investment Management  and Mercury Asset Management.

Polar Capital’s chief executive Gavin Rochussen said: “The Nordic region is an important one for us, so finding an experienced and proven relationship manager was critical.”
