Comments from Hufvudstaden’s President, Anders Nygren.

We started the year with a strong gross profit from property management, which increased by 15 per cent. This is positive since we have several major development projects ongoing at the same time as we are experiencing a period of rising interest rates and global uncertainty. In the current market situation, Hufvudstaden has a favourable position with a low loan-to-value ratio and properties in prime locations.

We have noted continuing interest in our office premises in the best city locations in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Several customers are clearly stating that they are seeking the most attractive offices in central locations close to service, shops and cultural offering. These are factors that have become even more important after the pandemic to encourage office workers to choose the office instead of working remotely.
