“It is still too early to draw any conclusions about how the corona pandemic will ultimately affect our industry. What we can say today is that Castellum has so far managed the challenge in a good way. In terms of results, we have hardly seen any negative impact. On the contrary, the profit for the first six months increased by 9% and we show marginal positive value adjustments of the total property portfolio,” says Henrik Saxborn, CEO, Castellum AB. “After our strong first six months, I humbly believe that 2020 will eventually result in increased income from our property management, and thus also the dividend, for the 23rd consecutive year,” says Saxborn.
