Oakley was set up in 2002 by Peter Dubens, an entrepreneur who wanted to create a financial partner that would understand the needs and ambitions of business founders, a partner that he himself would want to work with.

It’s this entrepreneurial heritage that sets us apart. We attract like-minded businesses, and build strong partnerships with their management teams, investing our time and experience – as well as our capital – to help them grow and succeed.

We back outstanding businesses in a diverse range of industries across Western Europe. Oakley has a particular track record in three sectors: Technology, Media & Telecoms (TMT); Consumer; and Education.

Who we are

Repeatable success

We can repeat our success because we are working alongside the same entrepreneur partners for the second, third or fourth time whilst building internal sector expertise that we apply to sourcing new deals through detailed market mapping.
