C.P. Group New Zealand

C.P. Group is a multi-level, global, diversified property development and investment corporation. Since its incorporation in New Zealand in 1993, C.P. Group has experienced remarkable growth and has amassed a considerable, strategic property portfolio across New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, the Finlands and the United States.

The Group has become one of Australia's major owners with a hotel portfolio of more than 2500 rooms, valued in excess of $700m, in addition to numerous other commercial and residential property interests of similar scale. In particular, there has been a focus on the acquisition and redevelopment of properties, both hotel and commercial, which have diminished in performance and/or require significant works to reposition and enhance their on-going value and economic performance.

C.P.'s success, particularly in the redevelopment of hotel properties, is widely recognized by the major international hotel groups in the region with whom C.P. enjoys close relationships. This success is also reflected in the exponential growth of the Group's asset values and the close relationships enjoyed with its Bankers and Financiers internationally.

In addition, subsidiary companies within the Group are extensively engaged in the Residential market, both as developers and investors, and, in Singapore have been involved for more than 50 years. In New Zealand, particularly at the luxury end, a large portion of the residential properties are held by Group entities as rental investments.

The further expansion of the Group into new markets further afield is a natural result of its success to date, combining its financial strength with the undoubted skills and expertise at recognizing the commercial opportunities at which it has demonstrated success.
