From our Chairman

Marc Brutten
Westcore Europe has been investing directly in Europe since 2006, when I expanded our long-seasoned multi decade U.S. investment platform to Western Europe. As a group, we are talented and nimble, resourceful and knowledgeable. Our local teams are proactive in finding opportunities and off-market deals for multi-tenant industrial, and office properties by talking to local owner occupiers, administrators, and solicitors. While we build long-term relationships with debt partners, banks and investors, we acquire properties with our own capital, so we can react quickly when opportunities arise and achieve full alignment. We hope you will join us as we achieve outstanding, above-market returns, and improve properties and communities throughout Europe.
