About Us


C&PS is a property based private equity business with a strong track record trading since 1996


In our investment vehicles, where possible, we are the largest investor. This demonstrates our faith and committment towards each of our projects.

For example, in City & Provincial (Equity Partners) Limited ("EP") which has been trading since 2002, C&PS is the largest investor at 28% with other director controlled investors taking this to 30%.  This fund has seen its share price rise from £1 to £6.50 and has now begun redistributing capital to investors.
