1. The Nordic region’s largest property company in social infrastructure
SBB has in a short time established itself as one of the largest listed real estate companies and as the largest company in social infrastructure in the Nordic region. The property portfolio has a clear focus on low-risk assets with exposure to the Nordic welfare states with long leases, high rental rates, and a stable base of tenants.
2. Broad tenant base with low risk
In its community service property portolio, SBB has a broad tenant base consisting of primarily municipalities and authorities that are tenants with low risk and strong credit ratings. SBB’s focus within the rent-regulated residential segment is on Sweden. Residential is characterized by high demand and low supply, and thereby a high occupancy rate, as well as low tenant dependence.
3. Strong credit rating – low interest costs
As a result of SBB’s continuously strengthened balance sheet, SBB received a BBB- rating with a positive outlook in November 2020 from Fitch, a BBB- rating with positive outlook from Standard & Poor’s in March 2021 and a BBB rating with a stable outlook from Scope in November 2021. SBB aims at reaching a BBB+ rating in the short-term, and A- in the long-term.
4. Creates sustainable environments
SBB creates sustainable environments where people want to live, work and stay for a long time. SBB’s work locally contributes to social, environmental and financially sustainable development of the society by being the largest Nordic actor for social infrastructure. SBB has launched a sustainability vision with, among other things, the goal of being 100 percent climate positive by 2030.
5. The Nordic region’s leading transaction team
The company’s operational organization consists of a strong property management organization with local roots, supported by group-wide functions.
