Nick Candy

Biography

Nick Candy is a British entrepreneur best known for his background in luxury real estate and for co-founding world-leading interior design firm Candy & Candy. He also operates a multi-stage investment firm with a portfolio of global companies in fintech, deep tech and augmented reality, digital media, consumer and sports, biotech, sustainability, and natural resources.

In 1995, Nick and his brother Christian bought their first property in London – a one-bedroom flat in Earls Court – with the help of a £6,000 loan from their grandmother. Candy & Candy was established in 1999 and quickly went on to become one of the world’s leading luxury interior design firms, with Nick taking sole ownership of the business in April 2011.

The company’s most high-profile project – the globally celebrated One Hyde Park residential development in London – revolutionised the residential property market worldwide, breaking industry records and setting unparalleled new standards in luxury design and living.

In 2015, Nick established Candy Capital; a privately held family office based in London to manage his personal business interests and group of companies. The group businesses range from real estate and interior design to the multi-stage investment firm Candy Ventures, which comprises a portfolio of global companies in fintech, deep tech and augmented reality, digital media, consumer and sports, biotech, sustainability, and natural resources.

Nick graduated from Reading University with a degree in Human Geography. He then joined KPMG before pursuing a career in advertising at J. Walter Thompson. Following this he moved to Dentsu Group Europe, where he became the company’s youngest director.

An active philanthropist, Nick, together with his wife Holly, founded The Candy Foundation in 2018 to pursue their philanthropic ambitions. Nick also sits on the UK Advisory Board of Common Sense and is a member of the National Council on White House History.
