Founded in 2004 and privately held, Rivercrown specialises in Principal Investment and Financial and Capital Markets Advisory across European real estate markets. We are focused on creating positive economic outcomes and generating long-term value for our investors and clients.

We believe the best way to do this is by building in-depth market knowledge acquired through on-the-ground expertise in the areas and countries in which we operate. Hiring and cultivating extraordinary people from diverse backgrounds is also core to our success.

Our strong pan-European capabilities are further enhanced by the acquisition of the Portuguese real estate fund manager Refundos SGOIC S.A. Established in the mid-90s, Refundos is considered to be the best-in-class fund and asset manager in the market.
