What we do
We’re Octopus. And we’re a bit unusual. For the last two decades, we’ve been challenging convention and backing companies.
We’re a group of 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 £12.9* 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 Group is the global energy tech pioneer, launched in 2016 to use technology to unlock a customer focused and affordable green energy revolution. It currently looks after over 3 million customers globally with award-winning customer service and serves 25 million energy accounts via its proprietary platform Kraken, which has been licensed to the likes of E.ON, EDF and Origin Energy.
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.
Octopus Money is making it easier, cheaper and more exciting for everyone to get money advice from a real person. We partner with workplaces to help their employees make the most of the money they earn. We’re on a mission to help millions take the first steps to turning their life dreams into reality.
Octopus Energy Generation
In 2021, Octopus Energy Generation joined the Octopus Energy Group. It manages a diverse portfolio of assets with a capacity of over 3GW, making it one of the largest commercial solar investors in Europe and a leading investor in onshore wind.
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.
