Our company roots stretch back to the founding of our original company – Capital News Group – in 1971. That company was our original retail company, first envisioned as a standalone confectionary, tobacco and newspaper store in Paddington, London.
In the first 20 years, the company grew into a nationwide retail enterprise incorporating several profitable retail chains, including Maynews, Capital News and, more recently, Thrive News. These businesses have since been sold with proceeds used to establish the PPP Family Office and to reinvest into future property development projects and other ventures.
The business’s continued growth has enabled us to diversify and get involved with investments around the world including in the US, India, Poland and Portugal. For example, CNG Polska developed and owns a boutique hotel in the thriving Polish city of Lodz.
Elsewhere in the Group, our sister company, GroupSP provides significant real estate development expertise to PPP Capital while LuxuryDigs.co.uk is the direct business-to-consumer (B2C) portal which manages the Group’s residential business.
Together, these distinct businesses are part of the PPP Family Office.
