About us

Octopus was founded in 2000 in the front room of one of our founders’ homes. Today, we’re a leading manager of alternative investments in the UK.

Founded in 2000, Octopus Group is a leading manager of alternative investments in the UK, with specialist expertise in renewable energy, venture, health and care real estate and commercial real estate debt.

In our financial services business, we care as much about the impact our investments have, as we do about the returns that we generate for our investors. We manage more than £13.4 billion* on behalf of retail and institutional investors, specialising in renewable energy, real estate, smaller company and venture capital investing.
Our energy supply business – Octopus Energy, is one of the fastest growing companies in the UK. It has grown from start-up to more than 1.6 million customers over the last four years and is now the #1 rated UK energy supply business, and the only one to be recommended by Which? three years in a row.

Why do we invest?

Our founders’ obsession with always delivering something better has led us on a unique journey. Today, we are building companies that people love and which make a difference. We want Octopus to be a group of businesses we’re proud to tell our grandchildren about. 

Our aim is to make a vital contribution to the UK economy by helping people, companies and institutions generate wealth. We invest in markets that should be delivering positive benefits to society but have been neglected, have grown fragmented, or have left people feeling disenfranchised. 

We believe in a responsible and considered approach to environmental, social and governance matters that takes into account the interests of our investors and stakeholders.
