The brothers were educated at Priory Preparatory School in Banstead before being accepted by Epsom College in Surrey. While Christian was later studying for a business management degree at King’s College London, Nick, the older of the two, graduated from University of Reading with a degree in Human Geography.

In 1995, they bought their first property, a one-bedroom flat in Redcliffe Square, Earls Court, London. Using a £6,000 loan from their grandmother, the brothers renovated the £122,000 apartment while living in it. Eighteen months later they sold it for £172,000, making a £50,000 profit.

In their spare time between 1995 and 1999, the brothers began renovating flats and working their way up the property ladder.

Eventually they were able to give up their day jobs and establish Candy & Candy in 1999, of which Nick is CEO. In 2004, Christian established CPC Group in Guernsey, to specialise in high-end residential developments around the world. Some of their more high-profile developments, however, have been in London.
