Ásgeir Helgi Reykfjörð Gylfason, CEO of SKEL: “SKEL has the experience and expertise in real estate, but 17% of the company’s assets are in real estate and real estate development. SKEL believes that there are opportunities in the real estate markets, due to changes at large rental companies. Supply has not met demand in recent years and the demand is growing year by year. The apartments at Stefnisvogur 2 will be put up for long-term rent.”
