Mr. Andersson has a long record of working with finance in the public sector. After 10 years of experience as the head of finance in two Swedish cities, he initiated the formation of Kommuninvest, the Swedish Local Government Funding Agency, in 1986. Mr. Andersson became the agency’s first president and developed its operations until 2001, when he left to take on the responsibility of the public sector with the state-owned Swedish Export Credit Corporation.
He has during the last 20 years worked as an advisor to local authorities in many parts of the world. Lars M Andersson is currently member of the Supervisory Board of Agence France Locale and Chair of the Strategy Committee within the agency’s board. He is also advisor to the English Local Government Association in a project with the aim of creating a Municipal Bond Agency.
With such massive experience of municipal funding best practise and challenges, he is a very interesting speaker, and in the video below are the first 15 minutes of his presentation to a delegation from Nairobi, Kenya on June 10th 2015.
Here is a link to the presentation showed in the video.
