Cushman & Wakefield, a leading global real estate services firm, has signed an exclusive arrangement with DTZ Finland Oy as its affiliate in Finland.
The formal affiliate appointment follows the 2015 global merger of Cushman & Wakefield and DTZ. DTZ Finland Oy, which is rebranding as Cushman & Wakefield from this month (January 2017), had been DTZ’s partner in Finland since 2003.
The firm provides Valuation & Advisory, Capital Markets, Occupier Services, Retail and Letting services.
Janne Eriksson, Managing Director, Cushman & Wakefield in Finland said: “We are proud that we have been chosen as Cushman & Wakefield’s affiliate in Finland. It is a great milestone for the development of our company to become part of one of the leading advisory companies in the world. For our clients this is more than a rebranding exercise as this will give access to better advice, knowledge and research.”
Agneta Jacobsson, Head of Sweden and the Nordics for Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Cushman & Wakefield has a Nordic focus because many of our clients do too and our combined expertise in the region will directly benefit our clients. Together we are an absolutely outstanding team. Our different local companies come together to create opportunities and new ideas for our clients in the Nordic region.”
John Forrester, Chief Executive EMEA, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Our strong and long lasting relationships with affiliates across EMEA extends delivery into markets where Cushman & Wakefield does not currently have a wholly-owned presence. This benefits both local and global clients who gain access to our global network and local knowledge respectively.”
Cushman & Wakefield is a top three global real estate services firm, with some 43,000 employees in more than 60 countries, recorded revenue of over $5 billion, 4.3 billion sq. ft. under management and $191 billion in global transactions.
