"We are very pleased to announce Jacob as the person responsible for our Debt Advisory and Restructuring operations. He is a senior person who, with his many years of experience from both the banking sector and the capital market, will be an excellent fit to further develop our offering in this area. We are already working with a number of interesting mandates in the area and will be able to sharpen our offer with Jacob aboard. The current market situation creates both challenges and interesting opportunities," says Robert Fonovich, Head of Catella's Swedish Corporate Finance.

Jacob Bruzelius has broad experience in financing in the real estate sector. After the financial crisis, he led some of the largest restructurings in the Swedish real estate market and, as CFO at Rikshem, he worked on obtaining a credit rating, the first for real estate companies outside the state and municipal sector since 2005. He assumes the position as responsible for Debt Advisory and Restructuring at Catella in August.

"I am very much looking forward to joining Catella and developing the work on debt counseling and restructuring. The market for real estate financing is entering a new phase and it will be exciting to be part of and drive that development," says Jacob Bruzelius, future Head of Debt Advisory and Restructuring at Catella's Corporate Finance.
