The divestment is a strategic milestone which allows Brunswick to increase the focus on growing existing, and creating new, real estate companies. Today the firm has seven real estate companies with a combined assets under management in excess of 3 billion EUR.
Patrik Andersson, CEO Brunswick Real Estate:
”Brunswick has had a strong development and growth over the last 10 years, and I am happy to see both our ventures and debt businesses moving on in new contexts – I see it as a proof that our business model of growing strong and independent companies works. We now focus the firm to grow our existing companies and create new exciting ventures.”
With Niam as a new owner, the debt funds will have the opportunity to develop as a complementary business unit to Niam’s well-established property and infrastructure funds. The firm will take the new name Niam Credit.
