Anders Borg was a nonresident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. He served as Sweden's Minister for Finance from 2006 to 2014, during which time he earned wide praise for navigating Sweden through the global financial crisis. In 2011 the Financial Times named Borg Europe's top finance minister, with him earning the top ranking in all three assessment categories, including political ability, economic performance, and credibility in the markets.
Borg is widely recognized as having been the chief architect of the Swedish government's successful economic policy over this period, where he adopted a series of measures to create jobs and maintain growth following the global financial crisis. He was previously chief economist of the Moderate Party and had served as an advisor on monetary policy to the Riksbank and head of the Economic Analysis Department at SEB in Stockholm. In the early 1990s, he was a political advisor to Prime Minister Carl Bildt.
Borg now also serves as an advisor to Citi's Europe, Middle East, and Africa business and as a member of the global bank's Nordic Advisory Board. Borg also chairs the World Economic Forum's Global Financial System Initiative and was named deputy chairman of the Swedish investment company Kinnevik. He is also a member of the board of Millicom, a leading international telecommunications and media company that Kinnevik holds a major stake in.
