Hilco Capital’s History

Hilco Capital was founded in 2000 by Paul McGowan in partnership with Hilco Global in the US, the global leader in distressed investment and advisory services.

Having been involved in many of the most notable retail restructuring projects of the last 18 years in the UK, Hilco Capital has progressively expanded into the stressed investment sector, making its first investments in the manufacturing and industrial sectors in 2009.

Since then, Hilco Capital has grown internationally with the opening of offices in Ireland and Germany in 2011, Canada and Australia – where the company trades as Re: Capital – in 2013 and Benelux in 2014.
