Our history

Nyfosa is a transaction-intensive real estate company that creates value by building sustainable cash flows and constantly evaluating new business opportunities. With our opportunistic strategy, we invest in properties in different geographies and categories. We are currently active on the Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian markets with a focus on commercial properties in high-growth municipalities. We manage and develop our properties in close collaboration with tenants and the surrounding community, with the perspective that sustainability and profitability go hand in hand.

Formation of Nyfosa

In November 2018, Nyfosa was listed on Nasdaq Stockholm. The listing marked the beginning of Nyfosa as an independent company after its spin-off from Hemfosa Fastigheter. The goal of the demerger was for the two specialized companies to capitalize on the potential of the entire business. Hemfosa’s portfolio of attractive commercial properties was the property portfolio that was the starting point for Nyfosa’s operations.

Transactions in our DNA

The ambition of the newly-formed Nyfosa led by CEO Jens Engwall was to create a transaction-oriented and opportunistic property company with a small and rapid organization. We quickly established ourselves in our role as the only listed property company focusing on sustainable cash flows and an investment strategy that enables acquisitions in different geographies and categories.
