Westcore Europe

Who we are

Westcore Europe is an internally capitalised commercial real estate investment management company established in Switzerland in 2005, wholly owned by a USD 8 billion AUM family office and part of the Westcore Global Group.

We operate as an investor and operator and seek to acquire, develop, renovate, manage, and lease primarily production, industrial and logistic assets either directly or in partnership with preferred investment partners.

Our network of preferred partners includes a number of prominent international family offices and high-net-worth individuals as well as leading private equity groups.

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 legal advisers. 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 returns, and improve properties and communities throughout Europe.
