Commercial property


Investment in unlisted property is divided between four strategies: core, core plus, value-add and opportunistic. These vary from low to high risk, and are defined by both the physical characteristics of the property and the amount of debt used to capitalise the project. We offer value add and core strategies.


Value add
 60% LTV
 
15-17% IRR
 

Core
Unlevered
5-7% IRR

Core 30
Up to 30% LTV
5-7% IRR 

Value add

Value-add is synonymous with growth and associated with moderate to high risk. Properties possessing a development potential are often sublet or have short-term leases on acquisition, and hold out the prospect of improved cash flow once their development prospects have been realised. The properties often feature high vacancy, administrative challenges, postponed maintenance or a combination of all three.

We invest primarily in Norway, in the Oslo, Stavanger, Trondheim and Bergen urban regions. The funds concentrate primarily on investments in retail, residential, office, warehouse/logistics, student accommodation and social infrastructure.

Core 

Core investments are intended to generate stable income for the long term and to hedge cash flows in the most liquid part of the market. Their risk profile is low.

The fund has a broad portfolio with diversified exposure, where the properties are characterised by stable and robust cash flows combined with solid residual-value protection, as well as by a potential for value growth from realising business plans through active management.

The fund primarily acquires office buildings located in the centre of the big cities in Norway, and purpose-built premises which preferably form commercial clusters covering education, sport, health and social care, in addition to other socially beneficial service functions.
