FastPartner owns, manages and develops primarily commercial real estate. The portfolio consists mainly of offices and logistics/warehouse/production properties, but with some retail premises and community service properties. Greater Stockholm remains FastPartner's most prioritized investment area. About 80% of rental income comes from the Greater Stockholm area and 20% from the rest of the country, with Gävle as the largest management unit. Moreover, FastPartner's property portfolio includes five properties in Stockholm city.
Over the years, FastPartner has developed a portfolio of about 200,000 sqm residential building rights and approximately 200,000 sqm commercial building rights. The untapped building rights are in different stages, i.e. ranging from development of zoning plans, approved zoning plans to established construction. Presently, there are good opportunities to convert these into leasable areas.
The main risk for a real estate company is the macro development in the markets in which it operates. The demand situation should be more sustainable in Stockholm given the growing population, but historically volatility has been higher in the downturns. Moreover, the major shareholder and CEO of FastPartner, Sven-Olof Johansson, is very important to the company.
