Wallander is currently a Partner at the Stockholm office and has many years’ experience within various investment roles and other leading positions. He will take over the position from co­founder Rickard Dahlberg, who will continue to operate within NREP.

Stefan Wallander has been working at NREP since 2016. He has 20 years’ experience in varying investment roles and over 10 years in leading positions, such as Head of M&A and Business Development at MTG within the Kinnevik Group. Wallander has also had a long career at leading investment banks, both in London and Stockholm, driving growth for European companies through M&A and strategic partnerships.

The leadership handover in Sweden coincides with NREPs plans of broadening its business and areas of investment in the Swedish market. The main focus is on residential properties, properties for public use (primarily care homes) under the Altura brand, and logistics facilities under the Logicenters brand. NREP invests and develops both on their own as well as in various forms of cooperation with other leading developers. The company, which currently has a property portfolio of approximately €4 billion is one of the largest investors in the Nordic real estate market and has built one of the larger portfolios within modern logistics in the region.

“NREP is one of the most exciting companies in the Nordics. During Rickard’s management in Sweden, the company has built a solid platform for growth and has attracted driven employees with the passion to develop NREP’s role as a real estate investor. Taking over the Swedish leadership in a company, which is one of the most successful and respected real estate investors in the Nordics, is done with humility for its history and with respect for future expectations,” says Stefan Wallander.
