Global investment firm KKR has appointed Alexander Thams as head of Nordics within KKR’s European Real Estate team, effective immediately.
Based in KKR’s Stockholm office, Thams will drive all KKR’s real estate investing activities in the Nordics, while also building out the team within the region.
Thams joins KKR from Pictet Alternative Advisors where he was head of Nordics, Real Estate, responsible for all real estate investments in the region. Thams has previous experience from working at Alma Property Partners and Niam.
Commenting on his appointment, Guillaume Cassou, partner and head of European Real Estate at KKR, said: ‘The Nordics is a priority growth market for our team, and Alex brings highly relevant expertise and an extensive network that will help build on the strong existing momentum we have across Europe.’
KKR operates a number of real estate strategies in Europe, with the ability to invest across the risk spectrum from Core+ to value-add, including from the firm’s $2.2 bn fund, KKR Real Estate Partners Europe II, dedicated to value-add and opportunistic real estate investments in Western Europe, which closed in June 2021.
