European Insurance Group – Acquisition of Extensive Forest Property Portfolio

We represented a company belonging in an European insurance group in the acquisition of an extensive portfolio of forest properties from United Bankers’ UB Nordic Forest Fund I. In the transaction, all partnership interests in the limited partnership fund were acquired for a total price of approximately EUR 73 million. In addition to forest properties, the purchaser obtained an existing forest management infrastructure. The transaction stems from the insurance group’s desire to grow the share of forest properties in its investment allocation.
