We’re the largest manager of Venture Capital Trusts and investments that qualify for relief from inheritance tax.
And we’re proud of how we invest our clients’ money.
Founded in 2000, Octopus Investments set out to be a financial services company with a difference, and one that put its customers first. A part of Octopus Group, today we manage more than £11.3 billion on behalf of over 63,000 investors and have over 750 employees.
From the very beginning, we invested in the ideas, people and sectors that can unlock a brighter tomorrow.
We built our expertise in spaces that make a real difference in financial planning. And we’ve designed investments that drive money into those sectors we truly believe in.

What we believe
We believe the best financial returns will come from investing in companies that care about their impact on the world. Not only should this make a bigger impact on environmental and societal progress, but it also makes investment sense.
