CBRE appoints Real Estate Investment Banking lead in the Nordics
Global real estate advisor, CBRE has today announced the appointment of Jorgen Arnesen as a Senior Director to lead Real Estate Investment Banking in the Nordics Capital Markets team.
Jorgen has held a number of Corporate Finance and investment banking roles over the last decade, including at UNION Corporate/Eiendomskapital and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) and has broad experience in real estate and cross-border M&A, equity placement, IPOs and brokerage having advised on some of the largest real estate transactions in the Nordics. Most recently Jorgen has been independently advising family offices and real estate firms on capital raising and M&A.
Based in Oslo, Jorgen will work closely with the wider Nordics Capital Markets team, led by Sami Kiehela and the EMEA Real Estate Investment Banking team, led by Tim Ryan. He will be responsible for developing CBRE’s Real Estate Investment Banking capabilities throughout the Nordics region, with a particular focus on M&A and other corporate finance opportunities, working closely with the established teams in Continental Europe and the UK.
We are delighted to welcome Jorgen into the team as we expand and develop our capabilities within corporate finance. The Nordics market has continued to perform well, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and investors are increasingly looking for greater optionality and to access real estate in scale. The combined strength of our Capital Markets offering, combining an innate understanding of the global real estate markets with comprehensive financial capabilities, means we are well placed to advise clients on the most creative capital structures.
I am very excited to join CBRE’s unrivalled global real estate platform and help deliver holistic, best-in-class investment banking and corporate finance services across the Nordics. By combining unparalleled real estate and industry knowledge, global reach and financial capabilities, I am confident that our clients will continue to see us as the advisor of choice and further cement CBRE’s position and track record of providing tailored, value-added advice.
