Over the past decade, we have established ourselves as a successful manager of UK alternative assets for a growing number institutional investors. Our ability to create value from rapidly changing markets provides our investors with attractive and stable returns.

Octopus is home to more than 125 investment professionals, managing  £1.6 billion on behalf of 24 institutional investors. This capital is invested across funds encompassing renewable energy infrastructure, healthcare real estate, commercial and residential real estate debt, venture and growth capital.

Our investment principles: 

  1. Invest for the long-term: it’s not enough for an investment to make short-term sense. We only invest in areas with long-term growth potential. 
  2. Create real value: asset management is at the heart of what we do but is not all that we do. Our vision is simple – to build businesses and create solutions that improve the markets we operate in.
  3. Strength in depth: we believe in gaining a deep understanding of a few chosen markets. This allows us to identify new opportunities to generate attractive returns.
