Jan Olin, Chief Executive Officer, VVT Kiinteistösijoitus Oy, comments:

“The completed transaction is an indication that, even in exceptional times, we can successfully implement our strategy. During our relatively short ownership period, we had time to implement certain small development measures and, driven by the favorable market situation, the sale took place as planned.”

Heidi Launo, Portfolio Manager, Evli Fund Management Company Ltd, continues:

“For a while now, we have been looking for a suitable logistics / warehouse property to the fund to increase its diversification. Therefore, we are now delighted to add our first logistics property investment to the portfolio. In accordance with the fund's investment strategy, the property is leased on a long-term basis to a well-established company and in addition the property also has BREEAM certification.”

Henrik Calton, Head of Capital Markets, CBRE, adds:

“Interest towards the logistics sector continues to be strong and the challenge has been the low supply of quality properties. This transaction gained significant attention and intense competition from both international and domestic investors. “
