As regards the residential portfolio, the partnership will primarily involve DEAS Asset Management, while Fokus Asset Management will focus on most of the commercial real estate portfolio.

New partnership to optimise returns on real estate portfolio

At PenSam, we’re highly committed to ensuring attractive pensions for our 430,000 pension customers. And one of our core tasks in this respect is optimising our returns. We believe it requires external partners with the right core competences and volume to ensure success,

PenSam wants to work with experts who provide us with horizontal and vertical scalability. This demands the right professional, technical, legal, financial and investment competences,
