About OptylonKrea

Optylon Krea is a Pan-Mediterranean real estate development and investment management company, created as the result of a partnership between the founding partners of Optylon Capital and of Krea Real Estate.

For 26 years, institutional investors like Merrill Lynch, GIC Singapore and Yapi Kredi Koray as well as private investors have entrusted their investment management to us. We bring our wealth of knowledge to the booming Portuguese market to bolster our impeccable reputation.
