Our team believes that there will be many interesting opportunities in both Sweden and Finland, and we are very excited to build a new investment company from the ground up. We are now looking forward to evaluating potential acquisitions, but also to building a strong asset management organization that takes care of its properties in the best possible way.”

Jonas Ström, CEO of ABG Sundal Collier comments:
“We have been looking to establish this type of business for the Swedish and Finnish markets for quite some time and have now finally found the right team to accomplish this.
It feels great to be able to do this together with Andreas, Philip and Per. Their experience and expertise in real estate coupled with ABGSC’s platform create opportunities and stability for investors.
Real estate is an important component of a diversified investment portfolio, and I am therefore very pleased about the launch of ABG Fastena. With this establishment together with our successful investment in Vika Project Finance AS in Norway, we now have the opportunity to offer a pan-Nordic service to investors who are looking for stable and predictable cash flows.”
