Opportunistic Real Estate

Niam is currently deploying capital for its Niam VIII (vintage year 2022) opportunistic fund, among the largest in the Nordic region. Unconstrained regarding both geographic and sector exposure Niam has demonstrated through cycles that it can achieve superior risk adjusted returns through asset selection, ESG initiatives, asset management, portfolio creation and exit. Over the years the Opportunistic strategy has been awarded ‘Most consistent PERE manager’, and through a prudent approach to capital raising each fund has delivered on investors’ expectations.

Core Plus Real Estate

Niam has invested three vintages of its Core Plus programme. This has enabled investors to gain exposure to stabilised assets in the Nordic region which not only generate capital appreciation but a significant stream of steady cash flow. This has been achieved by aggregating portfolios of assets where Niam focus on targeted value- add activities, including ESG certification. The tenant strategy has been focussed on downside protection and a significant portion has been with public sector tenants. 

Value-Add Infrastructure

Niam Infra invests in Nordic infrastructure through a value-add strategy focusing on energy transition, digital infrastructure and industry and transport electrification. There is significant demand for capital in small, fragmented infrastructure assets in the greenfield stage while most investors are looking for large brownfield assets. Consequently, asset aggregation and greenfield investments are an integral part of our value-add strategy.     

Real Estate Debt Senior Lending

Niam Credit’s Senior Debt funds offer investors exposure to senior secured loans with an uncompromised focus on downside protection while achieving inflation-protected yields. This strategy, which is currently investing its third vintage fund has, to date, never had a default. With an impeccable track-record, Niam Credit has become the largest alternative lender in the Nordics.

Real Estate Debt Opportunistic

By leveraging Niam Credit’s decade-long experience in senior debt investments, this strategy moves up the return spectrum by offering borrowers products which cannot be serviced by incumbent banks and lenders. By targeting whole loans and similar types of debt structures, investors in the funds can expect to receive equity-like returns through investing further up the capital structure, yet with significantly more protection.
