Risk management

Corem’s overall goal is to provide a long-term high and stable return on equity and thereby create long-term shareholder value for shareholders. This is done by investing in and managing properties in logistics areas and owning shares in listed Nordic real estate companies. All business operations are associated with a certain degree of risk-taking, risks which may affect operations, financial position and earnings. With good and proactive management, risks can also bring opportunities

Within the company, there are guidelines, processes and routines that aim to minimize risks but still allow a high level of business acumen. Risks related to Corem’s operations, as well as their probability and management, are identified in a structured process at least annually by Group management. The risks are then informed and discussed in Corem’s board. Risks, their estimated probability as well as current monitoring and management are shown below.
