Euromoney names Catella “Best Advisor in the Nordic & Baltic Region”

Euromoney has announced the winners of its annual Real Estate Awards – the most prestigious awards in global real estate. The winner of Euromoney’s “Best Advisor in the Nordic & Baltic Region” for 2009 was Catella, who also scooped 17 other first place awards throughout Europe.

Johan Ericsson, Group Chief Executive of Catella Property Group said “We have been fortunate enough to poll highly in the Euromoney Real Estate Awards since their inception in 2005 but 2009 has been our best year yet. Of course it is most certainly not smooth sailing in the current market but I think the attainment of the 2009 award for Best Advisor in the Nordic & Baltic Region is a reflection on Catella’s ability to adapt quickly to changing conditions and is a credit to our entrepreneurial personnel. Our heritage and inception was at a time of crisis in the early 90’s in Sweden and the types of projects we are engaged in now are similar to then. Of course, what is particularly satisfying is to see our non Nordic & Baltic offices polling so well, an example of which was the Belgium team winning first place for 2009 for Transaction Execution and Financial Services. We thank our clients for their continued long – term loyalty and support.”

Euromoney is the world’s leading financial markets magazine. Clive Horwood, Editor of Euromoney, said: “In an increasingly challenging financial environment, the winners of the 2009 Euromoney Real Estate Awards are those that exhibited the ability to react at speed, innovate, and make best use of the inherent strengths of their organisation. Through the real estate poll, the market has recognised the achievements of these institutions in the face of difficult market conditions, which is why the awards are so richly deserved.”
