Sveafastigheter closes third fund with 317 million Euros
Leading Nordic real estate private equity firm Sveafastigheter yesterday held the third and final close in its latest fund, Sveafastigheter Fund III. Including previous commitments, the fund has now received capital commitments totalling 317 million Euros.

We are equally humbled and inspired by the confidence shown by some of the most renowned investors in the world, says Simon de Château, CEO at Sveafastigheter.
