CBRE Expands Finnish Operations Through Addition of Finadvice Investment Team

CBRE today announced that the management and team from Finadvice, a leading investment agency based in Helsinki, will join CBRE Finland to strengthen and expand its capital markets capabilities.

Joni Koski, currently joint-Managing Partner at Finadvice, has also been appointed as Managing Director of CBRE Finland. He replaces Tom Newton, who undertook the Managing Director role on an interim basis.

The team of five from Finadvice also includes joint-managing partner Harri Saravuo and three other investment professionals who will fully integrate into CBRE’s Finnish operations with immediate effect.

The appointments will further extend CBRE’s capital markets offerings in Finland, where Finadvice professionals have built up a second-to-none reputation for sales advisory and property divestments services for domestic and international institutional investors, funds, developers and banks, as well as sale & leaseback arrangements for owner-occupiers.

Commenting, Guy Hollis, Managing Director of CBRE Nordics said:

“We are delighted to welcome Joni and the Finadvice team to CBRE as we further expand our service offering for local and international investors and reaffirm our commitment to business growth in the region.”

Referencing Mr Koski’s appointment as Managing Director, Mr Hollis continued:

“Joni is highly respected within the Finnish real estate market and has been involved in many high profile transactions in recent years. His broad knowledge of the market, excellent management and strategic capabilities as well as his strong reputation will be invaluable as we continue to grow our operations in Finland.”

Joni Koski said:

“As a team we are delighted to be joining CBRE and personally the opportunity to lead a growing and innovative team and support further business growth is an exciting prospect. I look forward to working closely with Guy Hollis and CBRE's global network of real estate professionals and through CBRE's comprehensive services, strengthen the long-term co-operation with our clients."
