Our history inspires us

CC Real was established in 2006, evolving from the Kaufmann family-owned Shopping Center architectural and development business.

Created as a full-service retail asset and development manager, we expanded from managing our own balance sheet assets into partnering with major institutions, property companies and family
offices, managing major Shopping Centers in the Dach Region, Croatia, Hungary and the Nordics.

Over recent years and following a strategic decision to do so, we have progressively been diversifying the property sectors to include office, residential, film studios and non-bank lending. We have also been stepping into investment management, having secured a European AIFM license and acquiring an interest in Madigan Capital.

Geographic diversification continues with the more recent opening of an office in Australia and with us has becoming more active in the UK and Western Europe.
