Real Estate Investment
Funding the entire real estate lifecycle.
Why invest in real estate with Octopus?
At Octopus, we’re committed to reimagining real estate investment. From seeing opportunities to bring institutional capital to emerging or underserved sectors, to our relentless focus on those living in the buildings we finance and manage.
We have extensive experience investing across the living and healthcare sectors, with specialist teams and strategies focussed on affordable housing, elderly care and retirement living. We’re also a leading non-bank lender with debt strategies providing finance for the development and repositioning of residential and commercial assets.
Our highly experienced real estate team of more than 90 professionals is trusted to manage £3.7 billion on behalf of our investors across closed-ended funds, evergreen strategies and separate accounts.
“At Octopus Real Estate, we focus on sectors which are underserved, require long-term investment and sometimes a fresh approach – areas where societal need meets innovative solutions. We build specialist teams and partner with forward-thinking developers and operators to give our investors access to compelling investment opportunities throughout the cycle. It’s about helping to deliver thriving communities, one carefully placed investment at a time.”
Ed Clough, Head of Real Estate at Octopus
