Sweden, 15 January 2020 – CBRE announced today that it is expanding and strengthening its Capital Markets service offering for domestic and international clients across the Nordics real estate market. A newly formed 58-strong pan-Nordic team led by Sami Kiehelä will provide clients with a fully integrated range of transactional, capital advisory, corporate finance and research services.
CBRE has been active in the Nordic market since 1999 and will now provide full range of corporate finance capabilities to complement its leading investment transactional business across the growing Nordics real estate market.
In addition to advising clients seeking to take advantage of the strong Nordics real estate investment market, the team is strongly positioned to advise domestic clients on international investment opportunities through its leading EMEA and global capital markets platform.
Sami Kiehelä, who has been appointed to the newly created position of Head of Capital Markets, Nordics said;
“A significant investment is made to strengthen our capabilities which includes a number of new hires to our team in all Nordic countries. This positions us to meet all of our clients’ needs and to increase our market share of this sector.”
“The Nordic real estate market is one of the strongest and most attractive markets in the world and with this new initiative we will be able to better serve current and future clients, combining a local presence and expertise within our international network to provide leading investment and corporate finance and research-based insights.”
CBRE already today holds a leading position in the Nordic real estate transaction market and aims to significantly increase its market position.
Amanda Welander, currently Head of Research, Sweden, has been appointed Head of Research, Nordics, to lead a pan-Nordic team of research experts providing in depth data, market analysis, thought leadership and perspectives into the future development of key Nordic cities.
“Growth in the economy is accelerating and the dynamics of the real estate markets and demand for different and new types of real estate assets is changing rapidly. In that context, advance analytics and data on these changing markets from an international perspective is crucial and CBRE is in a unique position to provide that,” says Amanda Welander, Head of Research, Nordics.
The Nordic countries are expected to grow faster than the other European countries and all Nordic countries are among the Forbes top 15 best countries to do business in. Only 10 countries globally can boast a AAA rating from all three top rating agencies, and of these three are in the Nordic region.
CBRE’s Nordic Capital Markets team advises investors and occupiers to buy, sell, finance and raise capital for real estate. It offers its employees the opportunity to work and grow in a cross-Nordic team as part of a global group of advisors and we expect to significantly expand the team with new hires over the coming months.
