Real Estate & Construction

The CRE sector has developed rapidly, from being dominated by Norwegian investors, to international investors representing about half of the transactions.

The majority of all annual transactions are represented by a number of listed Norwegian real estate companies, together with Norwegian and international insurance companies, pension funds, family offices and private equity firms.

With a significant inflow of international capital, the Norwegian CRE market has become one the most professional and efficient markets in Europe.

Norway, with the second highest GDP per capita in the world, low unemployment rates and strong purchasing power, attracts real estate investors seeking profitable investment opportunities with acceptable risk profiles. 

Experienced advisors

Since the start of Arctic Securities, our CRE team has been a leading advisor involved in the majority of the largest corporate real estate transactions in Norway. Our investment banking advisory services cover the full range, from buy- and sell side M&A advisory, to large ECM transactions, often combined with debt financing.

In addition we have initiated and advised on tailor-made transactions bilaterally negotiated between parties. As a leading arranger of real estate bond financing, we can provide a competitive edge to our clients.

Our experienced CRE team offers a unique combination of expertise and resources ranging from transaction strategy and tactics, to excellence in every step of the execution of each transaction.

Construction is value creation

The construction serves as a backbone for growth and value creation in all other sectors of Norwegian business. It plays a vital role in providing employment and creating value in both rural and urban areas. The building, construction, and real estate sectors are key industries in the Norwegian economy.

Investments in real estate and construction are essential for economic development. By reducing travel time, it increases competitiveness for regions and companies. Building residential and commercial properties allows for population growth and new business creation. The public sector frequently commissions buildings for public purposes, which encourages the industry's efforts within research and development.

The real estate and construction industry is under pressure due to urbanization and re-urbanization, which are altering the investment and capital market cycles. Improving the performance of real estate is a complex task, as each project must be viewed within the context of new themes.
