Nordic real estate investor NREP has appointed Heather Mulahasani as Partner to explore adjacent infrastructure investment opportunities.

Mulahasani will be based in NREP’s London office.

”Heather will play a pivotal role as NREP further explores challenges across the urban ecosystem,” said NREP in a press release.

Heather Mulahasani has held various senior roles at Goldman Sachs over a twenty-year period, most recently as one of two Partners leading its European Infrastructure team responsible for investing a $2.5bn infrastructure equity fund.

Prior to this, Mulahasani acted as Managing Director and then Partner within Goldman Sachs’ real estate team, driving its growth into evolving geographies including the Nordics, Germany, UK, France, Spain.

Heather Mulahasani, Partner of NREP said: “I am ecstatic to have found an organisation with such deep and shared purpose. I join NREP with tons of excitement around the company’s ability to make a positive difference and create value in every investment. NREP’s curiosity on infrastructure aligns well with my own path, having a strong foundation in real estate and broadening out towards other components of the urban landscape.

“Cities are responsible for over 70% of global greenhouse gases; to make significant reductions, there needs to be a holistic approach to transforming the planning, delivery and operation of buildings, alongside the infrastructure and systems that support them.”

Claus Mathisen, CEO of NREP, said: “There is a growing awareness amongst urban decision makers that a green transition at the speed and scale needed, requires a total system change within a decade. To do this, it will be essential to combine capabilities across the worlds of real estate and infrastructure, and to approach value creation from a systemic, long-term perspective.

“We are regularly exposed to investable infrastructure challenges through our projects in cities across Northern Europe. These challenges are often caused by the same macro drivers that we look to address in real estate, for example urbanisation and climate change. With Heather’s cross-sector expertise, she is ideally placed to help us explore this further.”
