What we do
We’re Octopus. And we’re a bit unusual. For the last two decades, we’ve been challenging convention, backing companies, and turning bright ideas into game-changing businesses.
We’re a group of eight entrepreneurially minded businesses, all founded on one simple belief: that people and the planet deserve better.
Octopus Investments was where it all began.
Today we manage more than £10.6* billion on behalf of our institutional and retail clients, with more than 70% of these funds targeting investments that tackle climate change, improve people’s quality of life and address inequality.
Octopus Energy is our award-winning, next-generation energy company. Its mission is simple: to use technology to make the world’s transition to renewable energy faster and cheaper. It’s grown to more than 2.5 million* customers in the UK and is the only energy company to be recommended by Which for each of the last three years.
Octopus Ventures is one of Europe’s largest and most active venture capital investors. So far, we’ve backed 130 businesses, including Depop, Cazoo, Olio, Big Health, Elvie, and BoughtByMany. Our team focuses on five key areas of investment where we see the maximum potential for growth: health, fintech, deep tech, consumer, and B2B software.
Octopus Real Estate
We believe in a future where our healthcare infrastructure is fit-for-purpose rather than creaking at the seams, which is why we’re investing billions of pounds of our clients’ money in the infrastructure that’s needed to support the UK’s ageing population.
We know how complicated the world of investments can be and we also know how powerful financial planning can be if it’s done well. Every one of our clients works closely with a financial planner to build a tailored financial plan that helps them achieve their life goals.
Moneycoach is working with employers to improve the financial wellbeing of everyone in the workplace. Through a low-cost, monthly payment every employee receives their own financial coach to help them get on top of their finances and live the life they want.
We’re helping save the planet by accelerating the transition towards a future powered by clean energy.
We manage one of Europe’s largest portfolios of renewable energy assets, including commercial-scale solar facilities and onshore wind farms.
Our mission at Seccl is simple – to rebuild the infrastructure of investments and advice. Our custody and investment technology helps financial advisers, investment managers and fintechs of all sizes to operate their own investment platform, more easily and more affordably than ever.
