Who we are
Wigan Acquisitions is a family office specialising in pan-European property investments, asset management and private equity fund-raising.

What we do
Wigan Acquisitions targets mainly off-market opportunistic real estate investments across Europe, such as prime-located income-producing retail assets, hotels, commercial and distressed property.

The company raises capital to invest in opportunistic ventures and private equity funds.



Why we’re different
As a family office, Wigan Acquisitions targets opportunistic principal investments, whilst remaining focused on longer-term capital growth and preservation.

The company is unique in its ability to focus on specialised investment opportunities, whilst simultaneously leading the market in fresh capital-raising mandates on a pan-European basis.

Where we specialise
Primarily focused on pan-European real estate investments and capital-raising, Wigan Acquisitions remains committed to its family origin in the United Kingdom, combined with having an office in Central Eastern Europe for being best placed to specialise in regional off-market investment sourcing, venture capital and private equity fund-raising.
