About us

Certitudo Capital was founded in 2002 and is a private project developer and real estate investor based in ’s-Hertogenbosch. The company is active in the fields of both commercial and residential real estate, land ownership rights and transformations of existing real estate, as well as in the area of takeovers of existing real estate portfolios or companies.

When it was founded in 2002, Certitudo Capital was part of the Elzent Investments Groep in Eindhoven. After the legal division of Elzent Investments in 2007, Certitudo Capital started operating as an independent organisation run by Peter Kuiten and was accommodated within the Certitudo Capital Group whose continued operations are now shared with board member Niels de Bruijn.

With a national, buoyant real estate portfolio and a highly-qualified team, Certitudo Capital's aim is to concentrate even more on expanding its portfolio in the coming years.

Corporate Social Responsibility performance ladder

A lot of organisations regard sustainability as an extremely important aspect of their business. This is equally true of Certitudo Capital. For this we use the CSR performance ladder which demonstrates, as a certification standard, that an organisation tangibly and demonstrably shows that it is engaged in sustainable entrepreneurship.

Sustainability plays an important role inside and outside our organisation. As a consequence, our aim during our projects is always the highest possible energy label.


duurzaamheid (1)


Real estate and sustainability go hand-in-hand at Certitudo Capital. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a fundamental element of our business operations. Examples include paper saving, LED lighting with motion sensors and our numerous electric cars.

Sustainable business also means reducing vacancy levels. Our iResidence portfolio is an excellent example of that.

Certitudo Capital is also affiliated as a participant in the Dutch Green Building Council. The Dutch Green Building Council is an independent group that aims to make urban environments sustainable. For more information click here
