Long term client relation and risk advisory
JLL has helped Hemfosa with their ongoing financial risks by providing tailored advisory services, allowing for our client to focus on growth and profitability
Hemfosa Fastigheter was founded in the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2008-2009 and went public through an IPO in the beginning of 2014. Even before Hemfosa was founded there were common history of collaboration between JLL (then AGL) and the founders of Hemfosa and when the IPO was about to go down this relationship was re-initiated. Since then JLL has helped Hemfosa with their ongoing financial risks by providing tailored advisory services, allowing for our client to focus on growth and profitability.
Quantifying interest rate risks might sound easy, but in a company with a multiple currency exposure and hundreds of properties across the Nordics, it gets tricky quickly. To then actually manage these risks with financial derivatives is both time- and mind consuming work. Therefore, we interpret the fact that Hemfosa has chosen JLL as one of their financial advisors for many years as a sign of quality and trust.
Over the years we’ve helped Hemfosa with more than financial reporting, portfolio overviews and derivatives. We’ve ran advanced simulation models on their income statement and balance sheet given different interest rate scenarios and market developments to find the optimal risk management strategy for their individual needs. Finding the optimal risk / reward strategy has been key to give the management and board of directors a foundation for decisions. We believe that our help has been one of the factors contributing to the success story of Hemfosa Fastigheter.
