Our history

ABC Capital (formerly ABC Beleggingen) is the division of ABC Vastgoed Groep that focuses on real estate transactions. This company has been operating on the national and international real estate markets for many decades.

Established in 1949

ABC (originally: Algemene Bouw Centrale) was founded in Amsterdam in 1949 for the commissioned development of housing estates and shopping centres for various funds, including pension funds for civil servants, the Burgerlijk Pensioenfonds (now the Stichting Pensioenfonds ABP, which also manages teachers’ pensions) and miners, the Mijnwerkersfonds (now part of Aegon). The first major developments were De Zaagtand, a residential complex and shopping centre in Amstelveen, and Alteveer housing estate in Arnhem. In the 1950s and 60s, ABC Vastgoed expanded, winning a place in the Dutch and the European real estate scene with its building and construction technology, management and advice. As such, the name ABC became a household name.

Since our initial international ventures in 1979, ABC has been involved in high-profile processes for numerous institutional clients. We have completed and sold projects and portfolios in Germany, France and the United Kingdom for several prestigious parties, including PGGM, ABP and Westland Utrecht. Acclaimed examples of such projects are Pont Neuf (Les Halles in Paris), Nice Etoile (Nice) and London Docklands (London), which also reveal our international focus on the importance of real estate for institutional and private investors.
