“The insolvency suit was not needed” – Patrick Forslund about the rise despite the pandemic

Patrick Forslund and his team has participated in real estate deals at a total value of SEK 43.6 billion. This is an increase of 15 percent from the previous year. The figures apply to the time period 1 July 2019 – 30 June 2020.

– We have had a stable increase in both the number of transactions and transaction volume in recent years. The activity is still high when it comes to housing, community properties and logistics, says Patrick Forslund.

But the real estate team has not been completely unaffected;

– In April last year, I thought I would probably have to dust off the insolvency suit, but better yet, that worry, just like in the financial crisis, proved to be unjustified, says Patrick and continues;

– Some transactions were put on hold and, needless to say, some sectors have been affected by the pandemic such as for example hotels and retail properties. But over all, we have not been much affected by the pandemic.
