TH Real Estate opens office in Helsinki and appoints Katja Holmström as Senior Portfolio Manager

Katja Holmström

TH Real Estate has appointed Katja Holmström as a Senior Portfolio Manager, based in Finland.

Katja joins the company from the real estate firm, Sponda, where she served as Head of Leasing. She previously worked as an Associate Director at Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers and Sales Manager at NCC Property Development. 

As part of its expansion in the Nordic region and increased presence in Finland, TH Real Estate is also opening an office in Helsinki. 

In February 2017, TH Real Estate acquired 50% of Kamppi Shopping Centre, the largest shopping centre in central Helsinki and the most frequently-visited shopping centre in the Nordic region. The acquisition was on behalf of the European Cities Fund, TH Real Estate's pan-European investment platform, launched in 2016.

As growth in Finland gathers momentum after a lengthy recession, demographic factors such as better quality of life, strong population growth and favourable consumption trends are turning Helsinki into an attractive city for real estate investments.  

Johan Åström, TH Real Estate's Head of Investment for the Nordic region, comments: "Kamppi's prime location, store mix and favourable opportunities for continued development were a few of the factors behind our decision to scale up our position in Finland during the spring. By opening an office in Helsinki and welcoming Katja to the company, we are now taking another important step into the Finnish market and further strengthening our presence in the Nordic region." 

Katja Holmström, Senior Portfolio Manager at TH Real Estate, adds: "TH Real Estate is an attractive and reputable player in the real estate market. I look forward to strengthening the offer at Kamppi Shopping Centre and contributing to the continued implementation of TH Real Estate's successful strategy for investments in future-proof cities."
