How we evolved
Marcol was founded by Terence Cole and Mark Steinberg in 1976 to invest in and develop real estate. It now has substantial investment portfolio with interests in many sectors, including hospitals, care homes, hotels, industrial, leisure, offices, residential and retail, with a combined value of over €3billion.
Marcol has evolved over the years: and in addition to a substantial property portfolio, it offers asset management and advisory services across the real estate industry.
Marcol, and companies backed by the business, identify, fund and undertake acquisitions, refurbishments, developments and investment opportunities. An in-depth knowledge and understanding of regional real estate markets is at the root of Marcol’s success and this is used to carefully select investment opportunities.
After focusing on the UK market for almost 30 years, Marcol’s shareholders expanded their interests into Europe in 2004 by creating two companies: Marcol Europe and Industrial Securities Europe. Headquartered in Luxembourg, with additional offices in France, Germany and the Netherlands, both companies follow the same successful management structure and business model used in the UK.
In 2009 Marcol and partner Advent International acquired Germany’s leading rehabilitation care provider, and between 2009 – 2014, increased the number of clinics from 27 to 45. The business was successfully sold to leading private equity firm, Waterland. Building on this success, in 2015 Marcol established Marcol Health to focus on the health sector in the UK, US and across Western and Central Europe.
Each company within Marcol operates separately.
