Michael Ohlsson has been announced as the new chief executive of Supervised Investments, replacing retiring chief executive Ouafaa Karim.

A Supervised Investments spokesperson told InvestorDaily Ms Karim notified the company's board of her intention to retire in late 2016, effective 31 December.


Mr Ohlsson has been working part-time at Supervised Investments in the lead-up to his official start date, said the spokesperson.

"Michael joins us at an exciting time as we work towards realising the potential of our business," Ms Coonan said.

Mr Ohlsson has had a 25-year career in financial services and superannuation, including nine years at Barclays Global Investors as well as holding the position of chief executive at Fidelity Investments.
