Niam Infrastructure has established a Stockholm-based team led by Sverker Åkerblom who has 15 years of experience in energy and infrastructure, most recently from BlackRock, where he was in charge of renewable energy investments in Continental Europe. Niam Infrastructure has launched its first fund, which had its first close during the summer and is expected to announce its first investment shortly. The fund will target small to medium-sized investments with a focus on asset aggregation and risk reduction in primarily Nordic sustainable infrastructure.
Niam launches infrastructure platform
Niam, one of the largest private property owners in the Nordics, has launched a new infrastructure investment platform called Niam Infrastructure. Since 1998, the real estate company has offered institutional investors the opportunity to invest in Nordic properties with an aggregate investment volume of €11.5 billion since inception. Niam is now expanding its offering to include infrastructure, focused on sustainable infrastructure investments in the Nordic region and Northern Europe.
Jennifer Andersson, Managing Partner, comments, “In recent years, we have seen a clear increase in demand for infrastructure. For Niam to launch this platform is a natural next step in our long-term strategy to become the leading Nordic manager in real assets. We strongly believe in the opportunities we have seen in this sector and with our dedicated infrastructure team, led by Sverker, we have the ability to deliver infrastructure investments at a fast pace and with a good risk-adjusted return to our investors.
We continue our strong commitment to fundraising, investment pace and active management in the real estate market and the team behind it remains.”
