Norwegian shipping group Torvald Klaveness has expanded its investment team as it bids to grow its businesses.

Former Clarksons Platou Securities partner Goran Andreassen has joined as chief strategic investment officer, while Nadia Naess has been recruited from DNB Asset Management to become chief financial investment officer.

They will work under new chief executive Ernst Meyer to drive growth and development with the aim of making seaborne supply chains resilient, decarbonised and cost-effective.

Klaveness says it has big ambitions and a “substantial investment capacity”.
