The appointment follows the decision of Hakan Blixt, Head of Investment, to leave the company.
In this role Peter will continue to drive Savills Investment Managements growth in the Nordic region, where the firm has seen a significant increase in assets under management since the launch of the Nordic office in 2007. Currently managing assets in excess of €1.1 billion, Savills Investment Management acquired 18 properties in the region in 2014. The firm has also recently set up a new office in Copenhagen to broaden its investment activity to include Denmark and Norway.
Peter joined Savills Investment Management as Transactions Manager in 2008, with responsibility for new acquisitions in the Nordic region. He was promoted to Director of Investment and became Portfolio Manager for the Nordic Retail Fund in 2014. In total, Peter has been involved in acquiring over €1 billion of real estate investment across the Nordics for Savills Investment Management.
Savills Investment Management also announced the appointment of Hélène Henning as Head of Asset Management to further strengthen its Nordic operations. Hélène joined Savills Investment Management in 2012 as Asset Manager and has successfully implemented the Nordic asset management platform across all countries.
Peter Brostrom added, “Our Nordic business has grown rapidly in recent years and we are in a strong position to continue expanding our presence across the region. I look forward to leading our talented team towards achieving this goal.”
Justin O'Connor, Chief Executive Officer at Savills IM, commented:
“Peter has played a pivotal role in building Savills Investment Managements Nordic investment platform and we are now one of the major players in the region. With a high quality investment team and growing real estate portfolio, Peter is extremely well placed to lead our Nordic business as the region continues to benefit from a strong economy and positive investment fundamentals.”
“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Hakan for his significant contribution to the firm’s growth in recent years and wish him well for the future.”
