Sourcing unique investment opportunities requires a different approach. We have a wide network of proven business founders and entrepreneurs, many of whom we’ve backed in the past. They work alongside our in-house team, using their knowledge to help uncover proven growth opportunities.

As we often identify opportunities that are off the beaten track, they can require more attention to unlock the hidden value, or agility to support ambitious managers who want to move quickly.

We back outstanding businesses in a diverse range of industries across Western Europe. Oakley has a particular track record in three sectors: Technology; Consumer; and Education.

Our approach

The next level

We invest with the belief that we can add value to our portfolio companies and help to accelerate their growth. We do not come with a set playbook but our business partners can call on us to help implement their strategies whether in product development, online marketing, human capital development and in many cases supporting them with buy and build strategies.
