Thank you for paying me a visit.  I hope you enjoy the content of my website. 


A brief biography Ármann Reynisson was born in Reykjavik in 1951. He has played a significant role in cultural and business life in Iceland since he returned from his studies at the The London School of Economics in 1982. Always unconventional by choice, Reynisson has usually turned to testing out innovations in the various occupations he has taken up over the years. As a result he is regarded as both untraditional and controversial by his fellow Icelanders. After he completed his education, Ármann Reynisson became one of the most influential pioneers on the Icelandic financial scene, which at the time was decades behind most other European nations. For a time, he ran a number of companies in various areas of commerce. He has always been a staunch supporter of culture and the arts and made contributions out of his own music fund to young and aspiring musicians. His parties are always an occasion and populated with guests from all walks of life.
