In recent years, Newsec has seen strong growth, both organically and through acquisitions. With more than 2,400 employees in the four business areas Property Asset Management, Advisory, Investment Management and Energy Transition, Newsec is the largest player in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
“With Newsec as our owner, we create a unique position in the market, where Zynka and Newsec merge and can offer digital cutting-edge expertise and solutions to jointly drive the digitalisation of the construction and real estate industry forward. We complement Newsec's broad offering and gain access to 9,000 properties in all markets where Newsec is present”, said Petter Bengtsson, CEO, Zynka.
Newsec has assets totalling a value of EUR 68 billion distributed over 50 million square meters under management.

Going forward, Newsec’s customers are presented with an expanded offer including validation of square meters through scanning, digital representation of property drawings, data representation and a digital drawing archive among others.
“Through the acquisition of Zynka, Newsec adds solid expertise in BIM, GIS and digital twins in combination with a leading platform for creating and managing digital buildings. We are now enabling property owners to become more data-driven and start their digitalisation journey today. With a digital representation of the building, information is visualised, and the property owner gets access to insights about, for example, surface use and indoor climate", said Christoffer Börjesson, Head of Newsec Digital Accelerator, Newsec.
