Norwegian shipping investor Joakim Hannisdahl is looking to recruit as he establishes his latest fund.

The respected analyst and investment manager is setting up Gersemi Asset Management after resigning from Cleaves Asset Management, which he founded in 2021 under the auspices of Norwegian investment bank Cleaves Securities.

Hannisdahl is not looking back after citing “irreconcilable differences” with the Cleaves head office.

He does not want to comment further on what happened during a “challenging” final period at Cleaves.
