NREP further strengthens capital raising capabilities with senior Investor Relations hire
NREP, the Nordic real estate investor and innovator, makes a senior investor relations hire based out of London. Felicity Beasley, formerly a Senior Director at CBRE Global Investors EMEA, joins NREP as a Director in the Investor Relations team.
In a move to further build upon NREP’s successful fundraising capabilities, Felicity has been hired to expand European limited partner relationships for the firm. NREP recently announced they are soon to have a final close of their largest fund at EUR1.9bn designed around a philosophy of making real estate better with a focus on the living, care, and logistics sectors. The fund, NREP Nordic strategies Fund IV, which will also be the largest Nordic real estate fund, saw more than 30% of current committed capital from existing investors and welcomed over 20 new investors mainly from Europe and the US.
“Investment in the Nordic region continues to be attractive and NREP’s clear strategic focus has proven successful with investors. We are keen to ensure we maintain the highest standards of investor care and relationships as entering the next stage of our business development.

The leading Nordic real estate investment manager NREP has attracted global capital to the region and while times are uncertain, the relative political and economic stability of the Nordic regions, combined with a supportive welfare model, has supported investor demand.
“I firmly believe that real estate has the power to make significant changes for the good of society, both environmentally and through understanding the needs of the end user. The real estate investment management industry has for too long overlooked the very people it is set to serve. Through every part of NREP, both internally and reflected in their investments, they consider their impact on society and create customer-centric solutions. I am proud to be part of this innovative and considerate business with a solid strategy and performance track record” says Felicity Beasley.
