Global real estate adviser Cushman & Wakefield has announced the recruitment of seven leading partners from Catella Corporate Finance in Sweden to significantly bolster its capital markets presence in Sweden and the Nordic region.
This move by Cushman & Wakefield is aligned with its global strategy to ensure the business is a best-in-class service provider in all key real estate markets and gateway cities around the world.
Widely regarded as being the market leaders for providing Swedish real estate investment advice, Anders Nordvall, Thomas Persson, Niklas Zuckerman, Per Hagman, Daniel Anderbring, Ola Jacobsson and Erik Dansbo will join the business at partner-level. Anders Nordvall will become the CEO of Cushman Wakefield in Sweden.
The current Swedish CEO, Magnus Lange, will remain in post until the end of the year.
Although currently dominated by domestic investors, Sweden is increasingly being targeted by international capital. This move will enable the new partners to tap into real estate capital flows from Asia, the Americas and Europe as they will form an integral part of Cushman & Wakefield’s highly regarded global investment team. They will also work closely with Jan-Willem Bastijn, Cushman & Wakefield’s head of EMEA capital markets and Koen Nevens, the business’ Benelux and Sweden chairman.
Cushman & Wakefield’s international CEO, Carlo Barel di Sant’Albano, said: “Momentum continues to build as investor confidence firmly returns to the European and global markets, with gateway cities being progressively more important in attracting capital into Europe. These new hires will transform our capital markets capability in Sweden and propel us into a position where we are a major player in the country for real estate investment advice.”
