Investing in Wallenstam
Wallenstam is a company with a long-term focus on value creation. We are following our business plan, something that helps our shareholders, financiers, employees and others in our external environment to know what we want to do as a company and where we are going in the next few years. This creates transparency, predictability and confidence for our stakeholders.
Stable return at a low risk
Wallenstam's property holdings are distributed between approximately 50 percent residential and 50 percent commercial, in terms of rental value. The company stands for long-term value creation and has a flexible business model. The financial position is stable, in terms of the equity/assets ratio and low loan-to-value ratio. Historically, the share has displayed a good performance, delivering a stable return. Apart from the dividend, Wallenstam creates value for the shareholders through reinvestments in the business, which provides the opportunity for a good overall return.
Create growth through cost-efficient new construction and efficient management
We plan future investments in new construction of about SEK 3 billion per year, and we show average value growth, thanks to our cost-efficient new construction, in completed rental apartment projects of 30–40 percent per invested krona. Combined with efficient management and successful letting operations this contributes to value creation, through our own work, benefiting both the company and shareholders. The project portfolio with potential new construction projects is continaually replenished.
Offer the desired product in selected growth markets
We build and manage rental apartments for residents in attractive locations in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Uppsala. Our commercial holdings, which mostly consist of office space, are concentrated in Gothenburg inner city.

The rantal apartments that we build and manage are important for society and its development.
