Octopus Group

Most companies don’t put their customers first. And when it comes to the things that matter most to us in life, like financial security, health and wellbeing, that’s a big problem.

We set up Octopus back in 2000 to change this. We set out to build businesses where our customers would feel so strongly about what we did, and how we did it, that they would proactively recommend us to those they were closest to.

So far our approach is working. We’re changing the way people think about their savings, we’re building care homes, hospitals and schools you’d be proud to send your loved ones to, and we’re supplying hundreds of thousands of UK homes with renewable energy.

Octopus is one of the UK’s largest smaller company investors with over 180 investments, and over £9.1bn FUM across its various sectors.
