Four reasons to invest in Wihlborgs
1. Attractive region
Wihlborgs operates in a region with strong population growth, a young and well-educated demographic, a robust innovation structure, high sustainability ambitions, good transport links and shrinking distances to the continent through, for example, the Fehmarn Belt connection. These are the factors that make businesses flourish and attract global corporations to locate their regional headquarters here. Our involvement in everything from urban development to social issues, keeps us in close contact with tenants, local communities and regional players.
2. Concentrated property portfolio
Wihlborgs’ properties are located in selected sub-markets that provide growth and development potential. We create clusters of properties, industries and networks that enable tenants to relocate, grow and develop within our portfolio. We know the market and the region well and can quickly identify new needs and trends. Wihlborgs is the leading property company in Malmö, Lund and Helsingborg. Our customers include private and public sector players, and represent many different industries.
3. Long-term and sustainable property owners
Wihlborgs is a long-term owner and develops properties under its own auspices with its own knowledgeable staff, a high level of service and local suppliers. We invest in flexible premises with stringent requirements for quality and sustainability with respect to architecture and building materials, as well as low operating costs. We take the economy, people and the environment into account in all our decisions, and our goal is to halve emissions in the entire value chain by 2030. We strive to make a genuine difference through tangible efforts.
4. Stable growth and financing
Wihlborgs has had strong growth for many years and raised the dividend for 16 consecutive years. This was made possible by our focus on continuously improving our cash flow. Our strong operating profit relative to our lending creates good financial stability, which allows us to maintain an attractive portfolio of ongoing and planned projects, and to capture new business opportunities as they arise. By conducting good business, we also contribute to the development of the entire region.
We know the market well thanks to our geographical focus and our headquarters in the region. We manage the properties with our own staff who, with a high level of service and a strong customer focus, create long-term relationships with the tenants. Our involvement in everything from urban development to infrastructure, skills supply and inclusiveness helps us contribute to the ongoing development of the Öresund region.
Wihlborgs – a sustainable investment
An investment in Wihlborgs is also a sustainable investment. In every part of our operations, we work to minimise negative impact and contribute to positive development. Nobody says that sustainability is easy, but we want to be able to say that we are doing all that we can, now and for the future.
Our sustainability results are also noticed by several independent analysts and rating institutes that review us regularly, including GRESB, CDP, ISS and Sustainalytics. The European industry organization for the real estate industry, EPRA, also evaluates our annual sustainability reporting, which is included in the annual. report.
