Bergson Real Estate Capital GmbH (“Bergson”) is a German real estate private equity investor specializing in distinct risk-return asymmetries. Bergson was founded by Fabian Godbersen in 2018 and provides differentiated investment management services with a predominant focus on Germany, investing on behalf of institutional and professional private investors. Prior to establishing Bergson, its founder worked at Morgan Stanley, Blackstone, Grove as well as for a European family office. Fabian’s 18+ year track record includes more than €5.5billion of executed real estate investments across all asset classes (zero capital loss) and €15billion of M&A advisory transactions across a broad range of industries. Bergson is independent, fully owned by its founder and co-investing own capital.
The company name was derived with a focus on simplicity and meaning: Henri-Louis Bergson (1859-1941) was an influential French philosopher who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927 “in recognition of his rich and vitalizing ideas and the brilliant skills with which they have been presented” (The Nobel Foundation).
