Norges Bank Real Estate Management (NBREM) and AXA France have sold a property in Suresnes in the western suburbs of Paris to M&G for €126.5m.

The partnership between NBREM — which manages property investment for Norway’s NOK8.1trn (€837bn) sovereign wealth fund — and AXA France signed a deal to sell the asset located on 31-33 rue de Verdun in Suresnes, Norges Bank said.

The buyer is the M&G European Property Fund.

NBREM will will receive €63.25m for its 50% ownership interest in the asset, implying an overall sale price for the partnership of €126.5m.
