About us Octopus was founded in 2000, out of the front room of one of the founders’ homes. Since then we’ve grown rapidly and today we’re a leading manager of alternative investments in the UK.

Our founders’ obsession with always delivering something better has led us on a unique journey. We have entered outdated and rapidly changing markets and reimagined them the way they should be.

We now have over 500 employees and have more than £6.7 billion funds under management. We’ve built market-leading positions across renewable energy, real estate and smaller companies, with a UK focus. Today, we mange nine investment mandates on behalf of institutional investors. But no matter how big we get, we’ll remain focussed on providing investments that deliver to expectations and remain committed to placing investors at the heart of everything we do.

The right people

We hire the most talented people we can find, from both inside and outside our industry. And we’re always on the look-out for smart, energetic people who share our values.
