Alma Property Partners, the Nordic real estate investor, has entered the Finnish market by hiring Robert Landtman and opening a Finnish office. Mr. Landtman, who has 15 years of real estate and investment experience, is a Partner at Alma and will head the newly established Finnish office. “We believe that there are a number of attractive real estate investment opportunities in Finland and it was clear when we founded Alma that Finland would be an important part of our investment strategy. We have already completed one transaction in Finland and with the hiring of Robert Landtman we will be able to increase our local presence in one of our core markets. I have worked with Robert before and I am confident that he will drive proprietary deal flow and help us more efficiently execute our active asset management strategy,” says Simon de Château, Partner & CIO of Alma Property Partners. Mr. Landtman joins from eQ Asset Management where he was responsible for eQ Care, a €450 million real estate fund. During 2010-2014 Robert worked together with Simon de Château at Sveafastigheter and was part of the Finnish investment team. Before joining Sveafastigheter, Mr. Landtman worked in London and Helsinki within the private equity sector. “I am very excited to join the Alma Property Partners team and I look forward to seizing investment opportunities for Alma in Finland. There is ample of room in the Finnish real estate market for a nimble and flexible real estate investor such as Alma. The team has shown its ability to complete good investments in the current market and I look forward to continuing on the same track and creating additional value for Alma’s investors,” adds Robert Landtman. Alma Property Partners is currently raising capital for its pan-Nordic opportunistic real estate fund. The target is to raise two billion Swedish crowns (approximately 200 million euro) of equity. The fund, Alma Property Partners I AB, has already made its first Finnish acquisition by acquiring Ideapark Oulu, a 30,000 sqm shopping center.
