“As we continue to grow our private wealth business globally, we are pleased to have Johan on board to lead our efforts in the Nordics,” said David Levi, Brookfield Managing Partner and Head of Brookfield Oaktree Wealth Solutions. “.In the last two years, we’ve expanded our team meaningfully. With 150 people across 10 countries, all focused on bringing Brookfield and Oaktree products to the wealth segment, we are committed to partnering with financial intermediaries and providing insights and solutions to help them increase the utilization of alternatives in their clients’ portfolios.”

Ros Price, Brookfield Oaktree Wealth Solutions managing director and EMEA region head, added, “Brookfield Oaktree Wealth Solutions’ goal is to help European individual investors access the same high quality alternative investments that institutions have been allocating to for decades. The Nordic countries are a critical part of our long-term growth plans in Europe, and we are thrilled to have Johan leading this initiative in the region.”

Bark joins Brookfield Oaktree Wealth Solutions from Savills Investment Management, where he was head of client capital & asset raising in the Nordic region. Before that Bark was at BlackRock for 12 years servicing Nordic clients. Bark also spent five years at Swedbank in various roles, ultimately leading manager selection for the bank’s model-portfolio team.
