Kaizen Capital is a Porto-based investment company specializing in the acquisition and re-development of distressed residential and commercial property, with a focus on hospitality and lifestyle assets.

We have a genuine passion for real estate and our professional experience covers all types of property asset classes, from residential, hotels and other tourist accommodation to restaurants, bars and retail outlets.

Our approach is entrepreneurial and we treat each of our investments as an opportunity to get involved in all aspects of the property development process, including acquisition, design, operations management, brand development and leasing. This is to ensure we maximise each asset so it fulfils its potential.

We currently own and manage a range of commercial properties in and around Porto. We have also purchased and redeveloped five other properties in the city, all of which we sold at a premium.

D.Manuel II: A former officer house in Porto fully refurbished into a charming guesthouse with seven bedrooms, operated under the Utopian brand.

Roberto Ivens: Award-winning Mexican restaurant in Matosinhos. We created the whole restaurant concept and sold it to Grupo Kanpai, who are currently our tenants.

Miguel Bombada: Monarca, a popular, bustling brunch and cocktail bar situated between Miragaia and Cedofeita

Ceuta: Another property operated by the Utopian brand, this is an outstanding apartment in the heart of Porto that boasts the best rooftop terrace in the city.

Bonjardim: We refurbished this old city centre house into a magnificent residential property with a stunning roof terrace.
