Intea was founded in 2015 with support from pension foundations associated with, among others, Svenska Handelsbanken AB, SAAB AB and AB Volvo. The company is focused on highly specialised and purpose-built properties within the community services subsegment in Sweden. Specific markets served by Intea include the judiciary system, universities and public hospitals. Intea has chosen to avoid less-specialised community service markets such as care homes for the disabled and the elderly, nurseries, and schools, which are served by many of its peers. Intea's properties are usually leased under long-term contracts to agencies of the Swedish government and municipalities, all of which are perceived to be stable tenants and financially solvent counterparties.
