CapMan residential fund adds two Helsinki assets to portfolio

CapMan Residential Fund has purchased two newly built residential assets in Helsinki Metropolitan Area, Finland.

The transaction is the seventh investment for CapMan’s pan-Nordic core residential fund.

The two buildings with 82 apartments in total were completed in 2023 and are located in the districts of Olari and Soukka, in Espoo. The assets are well-connected to public transport and about 20 minutes from Helsinki city centre. The Olari property is also just a short walk from one of the dominant shopping and service centres in the Helsinki region, Iso Omena.

“We are delighted to add these exceptionally well located newly built assets to our fund, which focuses on investing in high-quality and middle-income residential properties in established and well-connected locations in the Nordic metropolitan areas. While the asset in Olari is already EU taxonomy aligned, also the property in Soukka is targeted to be EU taxonomy aligned once its energy performance certificate rating (EPC) is improved from B to A. The fund’s portfolio in Finland has expanded to 31 assets with this acquisition”, comments Juhani Erke, Partner at CapMan Real Estate.

These assets complement our existing portfolio very well, and the transaction demonstrates that despite subdued market activity, there are attractive opportunities for well capitalised investors”, shares Mikael Hjorth, Partner at CapMan Real Estate and Fund Director of CMRF.

CapMan Real Estate has approximately €4.2 billion of real assets under management, and the team comprises over 70 professionals located in Helsinki, Jyväskylä, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and London.
