Lauren joins Areim with over 18 years’ experience in institutional investor relations and capital raising, having most recently spent almost 9 years at Rockspring Property Investment Managers, prior to its merger with Patrizia AG, as European Director in the Investor Relations team. Earlier in her career she held roles with Curzon Global Partners, UBS Global Asset Management and Macquarie Bank. Lauren holds a Master of Science in Real Estate Investment from The Business School (formerly Cass), London.

“I am delighted to have joined Areim with their exceptional track record, careful stewardship of their investors capital and an ethos of environmental and social sustainability that is at the core of all AREIM’s undertakings” says Lauren O’Brien.

The new office in London, Areim’s first outside of the Nordics, allows the company to provide a more direct and bespoke service to its existing clients, as well as to extend its network of institutional investors in this important region. Lauren will be based in the new office.

Therese Rattik, CEO at Areim said:

“I’m very happy to welcome Lauren to our team. Lauren’s personality, drive and extensive investor network is a perfect match to our Areim culture and IR team. Local presence in London will further strengthen our offer to investors, even more so with current travel restrictions.”

Leif Andersson Founder of Areim comments:

“Given our strong investment activity and opportunities we see on the horizon, now is an optimal time to improve the way we serve our loyal, blue-chip investor base and to develop new investor partnerships. I am very happy to welcome Lauren who will play a very important role in this work and our future growth.”
