We transform our vision into actions with positive impact

Our projects respect people and Brazil’s architectural legacy

Our investment philosophy offers up disruptive vision, discipline and an influential network

MMC has its own point of view in terms of the real estate market. Its strong local presence, insertion into the market, and unique business acumen grant access to one-of-a-kind opportunities. High potential niches constitute the company’s core business. In order to capitalize on its investments, MMC has built up experience in specific segments.

Our position in the real estate market grants us access to a myriad of opportunities. Even if outside our core business, some offer exceptional characteristics that still lead us to select them.

Reaching superior performance and offering excellence in service

MMC’s objective is to identify opportunities with substantial potential for growth and provide high returns on investments. Identifying local experienced partners with excellent reputations is paramount in the success of our investments. MMC relies on these partners to identify opportunities that might not be available to the general market, coordinate its political aspects and abide by regulatory obligations. In the same manner that investors make an equity contribution to projects, a significant co-investment is required from our partners who engage in joint-ventures. This assures that the interest of our investors and local partners are aligned.

Our activities include the creation, structuring and management of high liquidity real estate developments. We believe that local knowledge and partnerships, when combined with financial expertise and business acumen, are unique resources that lead to success in their respective markets.
