Trevian Asset Management has appointed Risto Vuorenrinne as Investment Director and Trevian Funds AIFM Ltd Jussipekka Aumo as Sales Director.

Trevian’s newly appointed Investment Director Risto Vuorenrinne joins Trevian from Australian ASX listed real estate investment company Cromwell Property Group, in which he has been responsible for Finnish operations for nearly five years. Investment Director Vuorenrinne has 20 years of experience in the real estate sector for diverse tasks in real estate management, development and trade.

“Over the past year I have been involved in real estate transactions in Finland with a total value of about 380 million, acting on behalf of foreign venture capital investors,” says Investment Director Vuorenrinne. “The attractiveness of the Finnish real estate investment market is reflected by the fact that after several years’ break several US investors have returned to Finland with direct investments. I believe that we will continue to see significant investments in Finland in 2018 from abroad. The economy has finally turned to growth, and Finland’s high yields within the European markets are of high interest. I’m really glad to join the Trevian team in this exciting market”, said Investment Director Vuorenrinne.

Trevian Funds AIFM Ltd has also strengthened its team by recruiting Jussipekka Aumo as Sales Director. Prior to his present position, Sales Director Aumo was responsible for Equity Sales for foreign institutional customers in Evli Bank’s Capital Markets unit. Prior to this, he has been an Equity Sales Trader at Danske Bank’s London office, a Partner at Mandatum Securities, and a stock broker in the OP Financial Group, with responsibility for foreign institutional customers.

“I am proud to become a part of Trevian’s internationalization and growth story alongside the most experienced Finnish real estate investment professionals,” said Sales Director Aumo.

“Trevian has implemented a strong growth strategy in Finland. The company’s next objective is to strengthen its internationalization strategy by directing new capital to Finnish real estate investment markets. Both recruitments support this strategy perfectly, “said Reima Södervall, CEO of Trevian.
