DADES, founded in 1937, specialises in high quality shopping centres and office property as-sets across Denmark. DADES also owns DATEA a leading Danish property management firm with around 400 employees and DKK 300 million in annual revenue.

The market liquidity is strong and a lot of international capital from sovereign wealth funds, corporates, private equity, and other sources are now targeting the Nordics.”
