The new company, which will not invest in Swedish real estate, will be chaired by Rickard Backlund, who retired as CEO of Aberdeen Property Investors in September 2010. Stockholm-based financier and asset management group, Catella, is helping the funds set up the company and identify office properties in major European cities.
