Value creation through profitable and sustainable hotel operation

Pandox was founded in 1995 by Securum and Skanska who’s mission was to take over and restructure a hotel portfolio and prepare it for a subsequent divestment.

Well-proven strategy and unique business model

Pandox’s business concept is to own and lease hotel properties to strong hotel operators under long-term, revenue-based leases and apply specialist expertise to be an active owner, creating value throughout the hotel value chain. Pandox’s vision is to be one of the world’s leading hotel property companies.

Startegie on six pillars:

Hotel properties only

Pandox’s strategy is focused on hotel properties as the only class of asset, where specialisation and knowledge are crucial to achieving results.

Large hotel properties in strategic locations

Pandox focuses on large hotel properties in the full-service segment that are strategically located in commercially and culturally important cities.

Revenue-based leases with shared investments

Pandox’s core business is signing long-term, revenue-based leases with the best hotel operators and to share investments with them. This lays the foundation for a sustain-able and high quality hotel property portfolio.

Deep hotel expertise

Pandox is an active owner with a deep knowledge of the hotel industry and consid-erable experience in all operating models in the hotel market. This, combined with analysis and insight, gives us knowledge advantages in the market.

Diversification in several dimensions

Pandox’s hotel property portfolio is diversified through geographies, demand, brands and hotel products, which balances and evens out the effects of fluctuation over a hotel business cycle.

Flexibility and own operation of hotels reduce risk

Pandox is able to move freely throughout the hotel value chain and also operate its own hotels. This reduces risk and at the same time create new business opportunities.
